The trainer of champions
Marius Iepure was born in Satu Mare, Romania, in north-west Transylvania. He started to dance quite late, when he was 12 years old. In his early years he was more into football, which he enjoyed with his two siblings.
In 2001, at the age of 19, he left his home country and moved to Germany to follow his dream of becoming a great dancer. In 2014 and 2015 he starred in Let‘s Dance, the German version of Strictly, as a professional dancer. As a coach, his students have won prizes on TV shows such as Got to Dance and in several German Championships in Latin American dance. He is a successful dancer as well as an established trainer and coach.
In 2018, he performed on the BBC UK Strictly Live Tour as a professional dancer having previously danced on the Blackpool special and in An Audience With Ian Waite & Oti Mabuse as a professional dancer and choreographer.
Marius spends his life now between teaching in Germany and living and working in the UK. His dream is to coach dance champions!
