Kiné Camara is a choreographer, instructor and performer based in Seattle, WA. She began dancing professionally at 8 years old, and teaching in 2005, under the direction of her father, Master Drummer and Dancer, Ibrahima Camara, of the National Ballet of Senegal.
In her choreography, she pulls from various African and Afro diasporic dance styles, and often explores themes of Western vs African culture, and modern vs traditional dance.
Dance is a powerful way to strengthen the mind, body and spirit - and her classes focus on all three. Her passion is to not only teach steps, but to educate holistically, discussing cultural/historical context, and cultivating self love and acceptance in tandem with the physical practice.
