NINA Y SUS TIMBA DIVAS
The TEAM! The team consists of 5-7 female dance members which are all handpicked by Nina that is the founder and choreographer of the group.
The team members:
Moa Mackegård, Josefin Lundqvist, Ninni Räty, Evelina Clayton, Yeelen Levy, Pilar Anturi, Nina Rico Gomez (myself)
In the creating process and when making a choreography Nina likes to use the lyrics of the song and the variations of the music to tell a story and in this way entertain the audience more. Nina – “for me it’s not just about to look nice on stage, I want the audience to feel something and get connected to the dancers. That’s why it’s important that they transcend when on stage. This is also why I have handpicked all the girls in my team, because each and every one of them have their own strong characters and personalities: And that becomes very obvious when they are performing on stage!”
We all dance and listen to Latin and Caribbean music, but the big passion that we all share is foremost the Cuban popular dances such as Salsa, Timba and Afro-cuban Rumba. So consequently the main dancing style of Nina y Sus Timba Divas is just that. But we also mix it up and blend in other styles like dance hall, feminine vibe, raggaeton and jazzfunk. - So you could say it’s a hot’n spicy dance cocktail!
