Sven found his passion for dancing at the age of 4, when he took up competitive tap dancing in New Zealand, where he lived at that time. Upon moving back to The Netherlands at the age of 9, Sven auditioned and began his professional training at the Dutch National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam. He participated in multiple productions by Dutch National Ballet, such as Don Quichot, Swan Lake, Nutcracker and Mouse King and Cinderella. Later, Sven transferred to The Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where he finished his secondary education. Following his graduation from The Royal Conservatory, he returned to The Dutch National Ballet Academy where he began an Associate Degree in Classical Ballet (yet to complete in 2022).
