Witnessing Michael Jackson’s passion and love for dance and music at a very young age, Niño has been aspiring to be just like him: To be an undeniable entertainer who puts his heart and soul on stage. Growing up, Nino shared his love and passion for dance with his friends and family, but deep down, he knew that this is what he wanted to do for life. In 2009, Niño joined a crew called Bucc N Flvr to train more seriously in Hip Hop and Krump. Over the past 4 years, Niño has competed with the crew at local (2012 Much Music NML Best Dance Crew Winners), national (2012 UDO Canadian Street Dance Champions) and international (2012 UDO World Street Dance Championship) competitions and events. His successes had brought him other opportunities to dance for music videos and perform alongside Canadian artists such as Joey Stylez, Inez and Queen Of Hearts. Even after the successes that Niño has accomplished over the years, he feels that he is still far from being an ‘undeniable performer’ like MJ. And so, while Nino is still in the process of learning and growing as a dancer, he
also gets to share and show his love, passion and knowledge for dance. Nino is currently one of the Professional choreographer dancers who teach and
mentor Indigenous, First Nations, and Metis communities for the organization Outside Looking In.
