AFRICAN DANCE GROUP
Casimiro Nhussi is a professional African dancer, choreographer, dance instructor and musician based in Winnipeg. Born in Mozambique, Africa, he has been a dance professional since 1982. Starting his career as a dancer, Casimiro then became the principal dancer, and then the Artistic Director of the Mozambique National Song and Dance Company. Currently, Casimiro is the Artistic Director and Founder of Winnipeg’s only African contemporary dance company; Nafro Dance Productions.
Nafro Dance Productions was started in 2002 as the result of Artistic Director Casimiro Nhussi’s relentless enthusiasm for sharing the beauty of his homeland’s culture with the rest of the world. Nafro Dance is the only African contemporary dance company in Western Canada, bringing a style of dance to Canada and Winnipeg that is well-known in the rest of the world, but which is still young here in the prairies. Nafro’s goal is to encourage and assist the development of both African and African-Canadian Dancers and choreographers by giving them a place to explore and realize their thoughts and goals, and to have a great time along the way.
