Francois started his professional career at the age of 17. He joined CAPAB, now Cape Town City
Ballet, and progressed to Principal Dancer, having danced the lead male roles in famous ballets such as Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and others. He did a stint overseas with a small company, based in Germany. Unfortunately, a knee injury forced Francois into early retirement. He then completed a course in Travel and began a career as a travel consultant. In 2009, Francois joined a franchise, and worked as an Independent Travel Counsellor – a job he embraced with passion, he was well liked
and respected amongst his peers and clients. Given the downturn in the travel industry, Francois has now joined Deuce Real Estate, to lend his people skills and experience in dealing with clients, to our business. He has taken to the job, like a duck to water, and we are expecting great things from him, as he pursues this new direction in his career path!
