This event will be held on Friday, October 26, 2012, at 6:00-8:00pm at Five Myles Gallery, located at 558 St Johns Place, Brooklyn, New York. The artist will be speaking about her work, inspiration, and the importance of Haiti and its culture in her career.
Description: After 15 years performing the world over, choreographer, dancer and teacher Nadia Dieudonné has created a name for herself as the best Banda dancer outside of Haiti. In 1994, she created Nadia Dieudonné & Feet of Rhythm, an Afro-Haitian dance company where she creates, develops and fuses the traditional Vodou dances with her unique contemporary style.
Dieudonné has instructed several master classes at NYU, Katherine Dunham Dance Institute, and Alvin Ailey NYC, as well as City College and State University of San Francisco. Nadia has performed with masters in her field, such as Haitian icon Jean-Léon Destiné and his Afro-Haitian Dance Company, Ballet Djoniba, Charles Moore Dance Theater and Forces of Nature. As a solo artist Nadia has been commissioned to perform throughout the US, as well as Canada, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Holland, Japan and Trinidad.
