Nina Kripas, born in Vienna (AUT), absolved a classic ballet training at the national ballet school of the Vienna State Opera – that’s where her success story started. After working for Liz King at the innovative dance theatre company “Tanztheater Wien”, Nina became a member of the “Volksoper Wien”. She always combines her own moves and loves dancing ballet and contemporary as well as modern dance and hip hop.
As a choreographer she works on contemporary pieces e.g. “The Nobility Of Failure”, for the ballet of the opera in Graz “Dream Addict” and parts of the dance film “Little Paris”.
Nina travelled through Europe and the US to participate in international urban dance events and learned from urban dance scene legends like Link, Storm or the Electric Boogaloos.
She was on world tour with the Black Eyed Peas and is also seen in their music videos. Since 2007 she lives in LA, where she has danced or choreographed for pop icons like Chris Brown, Sean Paul, Prince, Kanye West, Usher and New Kids on the Block amongst many others.
