Yiannis, born and raised in London, graduated with a BSc from Queen Mary University of London in Physical Geography . Due to his interest and passion for his research, Yiannis went onto complete a Masters identifying, and analysing, the potential offshore tsunami, and hazardous threats to the coastal regions of the United Kingdom. As well as his love for Geography, Yiannis also has a keen interest in the finance sector, and is currently working as a forensic auditor for Sainsbury’s.
Yiannis, who’s love for dancing started at an early age whilst attending Greek school, further grew on his annual visits to Paphos, Cyprus, where he especially enjoyed dancing with his family and performing the 'datcha', whilst being accompanied by his uncle on the accordion. Yiannis joined Figoura in 2015 to further develop his dance skills, and expand his knowledge about the different dances of the Greek culture, in particular Cretan and Pontian.
Outside of Figoura, Yiannis’ passion is football, following Manchester United all around England and Europe. Yiannis also enjoys playing golf, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and ice skating, and travelling the world.
