Nina is a beautifully creative soul. She dances, teaches, creates, and choreographs all with passion, and she’s an incredible mum to a beautiful baby boy.
Nina has worked internationally as a dancer, choreographer and teacher. As a student in Brazil, her raw talent was recognised from a young age. She was awarded a bronze medal at International Dance Seminar of Brazilia and granted a full scholarship to study for one year at the prestigious Palucca School of Dance Dresden, Germany.
Her professional dance career began at the Balé Teatro Guaíra in Brazil, performing various classical and contemporary pieces such as "The Nutcracker" and "Treze Gestos de um Corpo" by Olga Roriz. She also performed as a dancer for "Des Companhia", an improvisational dance company in Brazil, where she collaboratively created a lot of the performance material.
Whilst in Brazil Nina also worked as rehearsal assistant for the Director of Grupo Cultural de Dance, Patricia Marques. Nina was then invited as a guest teacher to coach classical vocational students in Curitiba.
In 2009 Nina moved to Germany to join Theater Nordhausen Ballett working collaboratively with the company director to co-create many of the leading roles she was given. During her time with the company she created several choreographic works including "In Between" for company soloist Yuri Hamano.
Since moving to the UK Nina has choreographed "Meninas" performed at Rhoda Mcgaw Theatre in Woking, "Autumn" & "Summer" as part of Dance Alive Dance Company's production of "The 4 Seasons" and co-created an original work for the Living Room Circus.
Nina has established her own dance school for which she regularly choreographs productions, most recently including a full-length production of "The Nutcracker".
