LifeSkills Entrepreneur and Writer, Israelmore Ayivor once said “You can dance in the storm. Don’t wait for the rain to be over before because it might take too long. You can do it now. Wherever you are, right now, you can start, right now; this very moment”, probably was right, in that case, and Portuguese Artist, Rycardo Gomez is the living proof.
The talented, gifted and incredibly polite Artist, entered the phantasmagorical world of dance and had the privilege of dancing with such performers as Rita Ora, Little Mix, Cheryl Cole, Cher Lloyd, Rihanna and many more.
In an exclusive interview to Anna Krith’s Lifestyle, Gomez, unfolds his story and introduces us into his world by explaining his journey quest and the opportunities that arose through his “Little Mix” experience.
A: You were born in London but you are Portuguese. Tell me more about you. What did you study?
R: I was born is Portugal and I moved to London when I was 16 years old. I’m just a young man with a lot dreams and I wanna make sure all of them can come true.
I love my family, friends,dance,modelling,sleep and good food 😂 I’m kinda crazy , I love traveling ,adventures and challenges.
I’m really passionate about what I do as a human and as a professional. Everything, I do has to have a purpose and a meaning for me . I live my life to the fullest. Everyday is a new opportunity to get better , to help someone , to make someone smile. Everyday is a day to be better !
Chasing all these dreams and making them come true, it makes me feel proud of myself in every single way. Hard Work , consistency , love ,pain, tears and loads of “alone” moments are part of my life, but without all of that I couldn’t be who I am today ! So, I’m glad I’d been trough so much, because they made me stronger.
I did study maths but I never thought I would be a dancer but when I was close to finish boarding school I started watching dance videos and from there something huge started growing in me and since that day, my dream took flesh and bones.
A: You have worked with so many artists , including Rita Ora, Rihanna, Pixie Lott, Little Mix. What’s the story behind? I mean how did the aforementioned collaborations happen?

A: Describe with one characteristic each girl of the ‘Little Mix’ group and explain why.
R: My girls are INSANE! I would prefer to keep that private.
A: You also got a tattoo ‘DNA’. Does this mean that, this certain show was your favorite one or something memorable happened during the tour?
R: My DNA tattoo means an “ERA” of pure happiness of a young boy being on a road with the best team and girl band around the world ! My tattoo is a small gesture of “ThankYou” to Little Mix for being so good to me.
