Dancehall, HipHop and Modern Contemporary Choreographer/ Teacher
Tevin Kayode Daniel had his first encounter with dance when he and some classmates competed in a small local High School competition where they placed third overall. At that moment he realized his passion and love for the arts. At the late age of 16 he took his first hiphop class taught by Adrian Daniel of the Elle NYTT company formerly know as Elle Incorporated. Within his first year of taking classes with Elle he landed himself in their company show Elle7 and by extension became apart of the company. He then ventured into dancehall classes taught by Shaakir Griffith and at age 18 without any formal training he got accepted into The University of Trinidad and Tobago (Utt)were he is currently perusing his second year of his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performing Arts - Dance Programme. While attending Utt he started Ballet, African, Modern/Contemporary and East Indian Kathak classes which set fire to his goal of becoming the most versatile dancer coming out of Trinidad and Tobago. He studied under the Lecturers Nancy Herrera, Susan Mohip, La Shaun Prescott, Terry David, Claudia Applewhite, Mandira Balkaransingh and Kathrine Carrera
His 5 years of dance has been a great success thus far, as he has performed in numerous performances showcasing his versatility and the tremendous amount of ambition and dedication placed into his dancing. These performances include Elle's class shows since 2010 and now he choreographed the dancehall presented in the most recent two, their company show Elle7 as mentioned before and the latest, En Route. The list extends to Spooked hosted by Le Dance Caribe, two of the M. Dance Collective events, Coco dance festival, Tobago Contemporary dance Festival and of course Utt's student and school showcases. He even attended the World HipHop Championships twice, at Las Vegas 2014 and San Diego 2015. He have also danced with a several Soca artist like MichelleX, Mr. Renzo, Farmer Nappy, Nadia Batson, Krich, Super Blue, King Bubba, Sekon Sta and Machel Montano and choreographed for Patrice Roberts, King Bubba and KI at International Soca Monarch Competition.
