Nina is half Russian and half Cameroonian - born in Yacounde in Central Africa. Her background is impressive, with endeavors like artistic coordinator for Jungledom network and Lead Dancer in the NYC based dance group Kamutshima on her track sheet.
Nina is also a director, choreographer and dance teacher at the Alma Libre Dance School in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Her dance background is a mix of basic ballet, contemporary jazz and African Dance and hip hop. Dancing is my entire life and my passion;
“I breathe, eat and drink it. I also love teaching dance as it helps me share my passion and evolve myself.
The Yemaya Dance Crew represents for me the bridge that joins everything I did before, to everything I would like to do; to dance wisely in the future."
