    About me

    Dear all,

    My name is Myriam Tsehay. I was born in Jijiga (East Ethiopia), I grew up in Spain and I started dancing ballet at the age of 5 and contemporary at the age of 16.

    I hold a degree in ballet, music and flamenco. I did some interpreting classes and I am able to sing as well.

    I have some experience in cinema, I am Dr. Shadid's wife in Wim Wenders's latest production called Submergence. I collaborate as a dancer in Fil Bo Riva and Ross Griggs's music videos and also did some short films in London. Have a look to my Spotlight profile **contact removed** I always speak French with my father and Spanish with my mother and I am graduated in Interpreting and Translation by Autonomous University of Barcelona. I also have Canadian and Spanish nationalities, I am a truly global citizen.

    I would like to add that I have considerable experience as an artist doing a wide variety of different types of arts. My art work covers ballet and Graham, Horton, Cunningham, Release, Gaga and Limon contemporary dance styles.
