Summary: David Ratcliffe is one of the most sought-after dancers in the world. He has appeared with Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and on Ellen. He’s toured with The X Factor, The Voice, and recently completed his third world tour with RuPaul’s Drag Race “Werq The World.” He has performed with such legendary queens as Bianca Del Rio, Latrice Royale, Eureka O’Hara, and Courtney Act, just to name a few.

He has been prominently featured in some of the fashion and beauty industry’s top showcases, including Asian Wedding Exhibition, Men’s Fashion Week Milan, Schwarkopf Essential Looks Global Tour, Salon International, Clothes Show London, Berlin Fashion Week, and Berlin Fashion Week.
