Born in 1995 in Kharkov, Ukraine, Cleve Nitoumbi is a dancer and a choreographer. At the age of 10, he started to dance the traditional dances of Ukraine, as well as classical and contemporary styles. Later, he discovered hip-hop, dancehall and street jazz. He does various performances, participates in contests and festivals and teaches street dance. As a victim of ethnic discrimination (his parents are of Congolese origin), he left Ukraine in 2017 to come to France. He dances for Thierry Thieû Niang (Va voir là-bas si j’y suis) and Kevin Kimbengui (Non, je ne prendrais pas la Méditerranée), and teaches at Studio MRG. He is a member of the agency of artists in exile.
