Nana Anim

Isaac Anim (Nana) is a force of nature - an extraordinary master African dancer, drummer, instructor,
performer, and choreographer whose joy and passion are infectious. He also plays bamboo flute.
Nana was born in Accra, Ghana, West Africa into a Royal family where traditional drumming and dancing
is part of everyday life. He started dancing and drumming at the age of six.

For many years he trained with several dance troupes, including the Ghana Cultural Ballet at the Center
for National Culture, and the Dance Factory of the National Theater of Ghana. Traveling throughout the
West African countries he studied dance and culture indigenous to these areas.

Traveling to Berlin, Germany, when the country was united, Nana choreographed a function called
“Unity”. Collaboration with various groups brought Nana to many other countries such as Italy,
Switzerland, France, Belgium, and the USA.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
