About Cynthia Irobunda

Nigerian-American dancer and choreographer Cynthia Irobunda is rapidly making a name for herself in the world of dance. Cynthia’s critically-acclaimed style combines influences from the African diasporic with a rare and impressive level of technical skill. Selected to perform her original dance, Nneka, at the 2018 National College Dance Festival, Cynthia has stayed in the spotlight through her Instagram presence and “Nneka Irobunda” YouTube channel. Featuring clips from her Afro-fusion heel classes and collaborations with fellow dancers, Cynthia lighting-in-a-bottle talent earned her an appearance in Sean Paul’s “Naked Truth” music video.
