He participated in the International Festival of Ballet in Havana and the International Latin Gala in Asuncion in Paraguay, and was awarded first prize in the Provincial Contest at the School of Ballet in Camaguey in 1995. He also received honorable mention in 1996 at the International Ballet Competition in Havana.
