Irineu Nogueira


One of Brazil's most talented choreographers and teachers in Afro-Brazilian Dance and Samba, Irineu was born in São Luís, in the state of Maranhão, in the north of Brazil.

A pioneer who became a solid reference within the Brazilian and African rhythms and movements scene, Irineu Nogueira is a wholehearted dancer and teacher who combines genuine passion with a contemporary vision.

For more than 15 years developing his own dance language worldwide (called Abieié, which means regeneration in the Yorùbá language), he experiments with a contemporary form, Brazilian dance styles with expressions of African rhythms.
