Yanou Ninja’s first encounter with the ballroom culture has been in 2012 when he met some voguers in a club in Paris. As a curious person and passionate dancer Yanou started going to balls and taking classes. Yanou’s category is Old way, the first performance form of Voguing.
In 2013 Yanou was adopted by Mother Lasseindra Ninja as a member of the Iconic House of Ninja and since then he walks balls and wins trophies all over Europe – Paris, Amsterdam, London, Düsseldorf and Berlin.
Beside Yanou’s achievements in the Ballroom Scene he has performed for brands like Hermès, Lancôme, Vogue, Vivienne Westwood, Adidas and has been working with choreographers like Zack Reece, Parris Goebel and Alex Mugler.
Nowadays Yanou Ninja choregraphs, judges and teaches. Yanou is involved in different projects in Europe and works for two different dance companies in France: Cie Nomad and Cie Uzumaki. Yanou’s Old Way is his signature style and influences all of his performances.
