African Dance Captain
Daaimah’s personal and spiritual relationship to her artistry has made her a most sought after performer, teacher and choreographer in the United States and abroad. With family roots in Bermuda and having been raised in Harlem, New York City, Daaimah was surrounded by the diverse and colorful expressivity of African and contemporary dance forms. She has studied Malian, Guinean, Senegalese and fusion styles under such dance notables as Karen Thornton, Crystal Harrison, Nafisa Sharrif, Abdel R. Salaam, Mouminatou Camara and Ismael Kouyate. Additionally, she learned various hip-hop styles in the unofficial conservatory of New York City. Her gifts have earned her such distinctions as principal dancer and Traditional Dance Captain of Forces of Nature Dance Theatre (Artistic Director: Abdel R. Salaam), and principal dancer and Rehearsal Director for Seewe African Dance Company (Artistic Director: Mouminatou Camara). Her film credits include Step Up 3D, and she has performed at such internationally renowned venues as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the Apollo Theater, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Harlem Stage/Aaron Davis Hall and Black Dance USA.
