Praia, Apr 30 (Inforpress) – The dancer and performer from Raiz di Polon Dance Company, Nuno Barreto, defended Monday that it is necessary to motivate young people to contemporary dance continues to evolve and win “emancipation”.

Nuno Barreto was speaking to Inforpress as part of the World Dance Day celebration, marked Monday by the Simbrom Produson, with the “Cabo Verde Dança” event, which goals to perform the performance of several dancers from the City of Praia.

At age 24, Nuno Barreto sought to become involved in the world of dance, participating in classes and workshops with foreign dancers, and even did scenery assistance with the dancer, choreographer and founder of Raiz di Polon, Manu Preto.

As he said, at the “right time and the right place” he was invited to join the Raiz di Polon Dance Company. When he was 14 years old, he considered that he had gained “a lot of experience”, but as learning is daily, he is still working to perfect the art of using the body.
