Event description

Description

Join us for a night of dance, music and education to celebrate multi-culturalism in New Hampshire, featuring Deo Mwano, Movement From Above and special guests.

Deo Mwano is a visionary choreographer and dancer. He has been studying and training for over 10 years in the genres of fusion jazz, street jazz, African dance and a variety of hip hop styles. He has conducted dance workshops all over the U.S., and has had opportunities to showcase his choreography internationally. In 2010, Deo appeared in a TV special for the show "Dancing With The Stars", where he choreographed and performed with his brothers and the professional dancers on the show. Deo collaborated with Kim Johnson, whom he co-choreographed the cha cha/ Hip Hop routine that was featured on the show.

A daring escape from the Democratic Republic of the Congo led Deo Mwano to a life of freedom, inspiration, appreciation, and the desire to persevere to excel.

Deo is also an innovative, multi-cultural leader in education, organizational leadership and social justice. He teaches, inspires, and motivates students to follow a path of self-improvement and dedication to others. In doing so, Deo draws on his often traumatic personal experience as well as his educational background.

Growing up during a violent civil war, Deo faced much misfortune. At age nine, he became the patriarch of the family. It wasn’t easy. But after moving to the United States in 2000 with his mother and three younger brothers, he found his voice.

A gifted performer and presenter, Deo connects with others through dance and motivational speaking. His talents have been welcomed at Yale University, NHPR’s Word of Mouth, The Moth storytelling at GCIR annual event, TEDxAmoskeagMillyard, Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC), WJLA TV, and Politics and Prose, which emphasized the importance of global and social awareness.

Deo works with international and national businesses, universities and nonprofits. His core strengths include Discipline Expertise and Action Expertise. As a discipline expert, he helps people understand what impacts their behaviors (the Will-Drivers). He has worked with diverse demographic groups, studying “Motivation to Action”.

Deo earned his BA in International Relations and History and MBA in Strategic Leadership. His honors include being recently named to 40 Under 40 as an emerging leader in New Hampshire.
