Born in the Dominican Republic, raised in Pawtucket RI, Nano felt in love with the arts of dancing at the age of 11 after watching the “Kiss Kiss” Music Video by Chris Brown. Nano attended Joseph Jenks Jr High in 8th and graduated 12th grade from JMW in Pawtucket, where he met Nikki Lee And Tovah Muro, two of his dance mentors that trained him in Ballet and Modern. Nano was really interested in advancing his Hip Hop skills, so Nikki brought him over to “Dancin Spirit” where he was offered a scholarship by Christine Atamian Bairos (Owner of Dancin’ Spirits) and also met Kelvin Fabian (Nanos’ Popping and Hip Hop mentor). After 4 years of training and traveling around the east coast doing numerous of competitions like, “Turnt It up and Star System” with Dancin Spirit, Nano decided to expanded his knowledge and joined “Liv3lihood” a dance crew founded at Thr3e Live Dance Complex in RI.
