Kiné is an educator, artistic director and performer based in Seattle. She started dancing young under the direction of her father, Ibrahima Camara, Master Drummer and Dancer, formerly of the National Ballet of Senegal. Kiné holds regular classes in Seattle and has taught with the University of Washington, Vashon Island Center for the Arts, The Overlake School, and Bellingham Repertory Dance.
As an educator, she focuses on holistic learning: studying dance fundamentals and technique, understanding history and cultural context, and embracing the inner work inspired by experiences while dancing. In her choreography, she pulls from African and Afro diasporic dance styles, and often explores themes of Western vs African culture, and modern vs traditional dance.
When not Dancing
She is sleeping. Yes, most days include dance, but she also enjoys traveling especially in Europe, Latin America and Africa!
