This week we are delighted to welcome Fabrice Camels, Joffrey Ballet Principal Dancer. Fabrice was born in France and began dancing at the age of three. He completed his ballet training at the Paris Opera Ballet school before venturing the the United States where he trained at the Rock School and danced with Pennsylvania Ballet. In 2002, he joined the Joffrey Ballet under the direction of Gerald Arpino. Mr. Calmels holds the Guiness World Record for The Tallest Ballet Dancer in the world at 6’ 6”. Today we talk with Fabrice about his decision to come dance in the states, the challenges that come with his impressive height, his outside projects, and how he came to be an IMG model.
