Ade Onanuga has danced for as long as he can remember, but has professionally since 2011. Starting out on the club scene, Ade went on to compete in dance battle events which eventually lead onto commercial work. During that time, Ade’s professional dance career has grown; appearing on TV shows, adverts and dancing on stage and in music videos for artists. He has become a well rounded dancer.
Teaching also plays a major role in Ade’s career, having taught different styles of Hip-Hop and street dance to adults and children alike. It is worth noting, however, that while he enjoys the buzz that battling gives him, Ade is equally as passionate about teaching. Both aspects of dance allow him to express his creativity and share a different part of himself. As a teacher, Ade wants to show his students that dance is more than simply moving your body to music and has a deeper layer with its connection to music, our minds and how we influence others.
