Nina Kripas (AT)

Nina Kripas had her classical ballet education at the National Ballet School of the Vienna Opera. After that she was a member of Vienna's innovative dance theatre company TTW (TanzTheaterWien) led by Liz King and soon after a member of the Volksoper Wien. At TTW Nina always had the freedom to create her own language and combine her love for HipHop with Contemporary Dance as well as Classical and Modern Dance. Nina travelled through Europe and the US to be at international street dance events and to learn from legendary dancers such as Marjory Smarth, Storm, Karl Libanus, Bruce Ykanji, Superdave, Link, Brian Green, Shotyme, The Electric Boogaloos, The Lockers, Anthony Thomas, and many more. She also choreographed contemporary pieces like "the Nobility of Failure" for the ABCD Dance Company, "Dream Addict" for the Ballet Company of the Opera in Graz and parts of the dance movie "Little Paris". Nina was co-choreographer for the US-Pilot "Limelight".
2007 she moved to Los Angeles where she had the opportunity to work with renowned choreographers such as Fatima Robinson and Richmond+Tone Taluega and others. She was on world tour with the Black Eyed Peas and danced in music videos and award shows for artists such as Chris Brown, Sean Paul, Prince, Kanye West, Usher, New Kids on the Block and many more.
Nina always had a passion for teaching and inspiring people of all ages all over the world.
