Extremely happy to announce NEMANJA SONERO (Estonia) and SOPHIE FOX (England) live in Singapore for the FIRST time!
Nemanja Sonero is known as one of the most versatile and famous dancers from Southeast Europe. Since the young age he did capoeira, afro, afro-brasilian & afro-cuban folk and modern dances, hip hop, tango, classical & modern ballet, as well as contemporary dances, etc. The first time he saw Semba dance and music was in 2004 with his friends from the Angolan embassy, and then in 2007 was his first contact with Kizomba. With time he was able to have lessons with many different teachers from Angola, Cape Verde and Portugal, who influenced and motivated him to develop his own unique smooth and precise style, which got him well-known all over Europe and the world. For over a decade Nemanja has been teaching, organizing, performing and DJ-ing at Afro & Latin events and festivals all over the world.
Sophie Fox was born and raised in England and began dancing hip hop at the age of 11 but quickly explored other genres and by the age of 13 she had discovered love for Latin dance and began dancing ballroom. Her talent was evident to the Latin scene in England and by the age of 16 she became involved with a dance company in her home city, ‘Steel City Salsa’ and was soon established as one of the school’s teachers. At this time Sophie also began to study contemporary & the theory of dance in her college. As Kizomba began to gain prominence in the UK, in 2008 Sophie discovered her real passion and attended her first Kizomba festival in Lisbon.
Since then, Sophie’s unique British style has come to the attention of many in the Kizomba scene – Partnering with Tony Pirata has opened many doors to the dance and culture of Kizomba and it has since become part of Sophie’s life and as a dancer Sophie strives to explore every aspect of the dance.
