Born in France, Medhi grew up in Brittany where he took his first ballet class with Chantal Bieber in a small town called Lamballe. In 1996, he auditioned for the Paris Opera Ballet School and was selected by Claude Bessy to join the school full-time, where he studied until he completed his training at age 17. A disciplined and accomplished student, Medhi was invited by the director of the English National Ballet in London to join the company where he danced as a soloist in productions of Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, Giselle and The Nutcracker. After five years dancing in England, he took up an opportunity to join the Royal New Zealand Ballet to dance the role of Basilio in Don Quixote, his first principal role in a full-length ballet. He worked with the company for five years, adding more soloist and principal roles to his repertoire before moving back to France in 2013 to join the Nice Opera Ballet as a soloist. While in Nice, Medhi continued to dance iconic classical roles such as James in La Sylphide along with works by neo-classical and contemporary choreographers.
Medhi has toured to many countries during his career, including Russia, China, Italy, Spain, and Australia. Dancing and living abroad has given him valuable insight into the ballet industry across the globe and has enabled him to develop an adaptable coaching style to understand and work effectively with students from all backgrounds. During his time in New Zealand, he developed an interest in coaching while dancing with the RNZB. He began teaching at masterclasses and ballet courses whenever his dancing schedule allowed. Seeing his keen eye for technique, fellow dancers would regularly ask for his advice and tailored coaching and he enjoyed working with them to bring out their best.
Seventeen years after starting his ballet career, he made the decision to devote his time to teaching and coaching dancers and gained his ballet teaching qualification when back in France. He now regularly works with students from The Paris Opera Ballet School, Cannes Rosella Hightower Ballet School and The Royal Ballet School in London. He also teaches as a guest coach in various schools and courses such as the International Dance Pont L’Abbé summer course.
