Mirando Atemici was born in Saint Laurent du Maroni, French Guiana (France). He started dancing since he’s 12 years old. The passion of dancing allowed him to expand it to Spain, Singapore, the Philippines, Suriname, Brazil and the United States. He believes that the hip hop culture has made it possible to combat racial segregation by going beyond social and racial barriers, because today it affects all communities as well as all social classes. It has created strong bonds as well as perennial thanks to universal values (sharing, respect, solidarity, peace, love and having fun…). Even more incredible, its popularity touches the whole globe and it contributes today to the economy because businesses have been developed all around it. He teaches all ages and levels of Hip Hop.
