- About Us
Artistic/Creative Director, choreographer and dance teacher Angel Kaba began her artistic career with ballet at the tender age of 6, which she pursued for more than 15 years. She also studied music theory and theater at the Music Academy of Brussels in Belgium. Beside her artistic path, she graduated with honors in Marketing from a business school in 2005.
In 2006, she started working on her first musical entitled "Elya's Dream". By then, she had already founded her own performance company, Contre-Tendance. Her primary goal is to train artists and to create opportunities for them to express themselves on stage. "Believe in your dreams and try hard to reach them" is the leitmotif she keeps repeating to her company's artists.
In 2009 Angel won a dance competition launched by the NUTELLA brand in Europe. She won the chance to fly to New York, where she perfected her training in ballet, street jazz and Hip Hop at the BROADWAY DANCE CENTER and later the ALVIN AILEY EXTENSION PERIDANCE CAPEZIO CENTER and STEPS ON BROADWAY. During that period, she met and was spotted by her mentor Ms. ROBIN DUNN F.A.C.E. Coach, a choreographer and dance teacher who has established herself as one of the key community leaders within the entertainment industry today.
Angel shared stage with artists like Coolio, Orishas, Kaye Styles and others. Further notable experiences she gained involved stage/television/commercial performances and dancing for world renowned brands like Coca Cola, Levi Strauss & Co, Fructis by Garnier, Nutella, Universal...
Angel now lives in between Brussels and New York City, where she is currently working under ED Entertainment, the company of Miss Dunn.
Angel Kaba developed her own dance technique "Ka'frican" combining a Hip Hop foundation with Afro Urban dance styles. The foundation of urban street dance styles is incorporated as backdrop to the heavily African influenced technique. The social and pleasant side of this discipline creates an environment where students dance, have fun and feel free. She performs and teaches hip-hop/ragga-dancehall/afro urban master classes all over the world, including Belgium, Germany, Poland, France, Congo DRC, Martinique.
