“Born in Ethiopia, I started dancing when I was eight and started teaching other adopted Ethiopian children as a way of sharing and showcasing the customs and traditions of Ethiopia. I have performed with many groups, including the Ethiopia Bahil Dance Group, Papasa, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, Bailalo Latino, Fab Fambool and many more. My dance expressions allow me to entertain, perform and educate various audiences at many events, functions and festivals showcasing my African culture. Some of these include Woodford Folk Festival, Latin American Festival, Brisbane Multicultural Festival, Queensland Multicultural Festival, Fraser Coast Festival, Mackay Blues and Roots Festival and many more.

To me “Dance is a language only your body can understand. It expresses what words cannot. Dance is about finding out who you are and once I am on the stage, I feel like my body is on fire and the rhythms of the drums allow me to be truly free…it is hard to express in words until you experience it for yourself. African music and dance is a sacred space where you can find your own unique rhythm and style”. – Yenenesh Nigusse
