Destino Dance Company
Junaid Jemal Sendi and Addisu Demissie have accumulated more than seventeen years of experience of performance,
teaching and choreography both in Ethiopia and on the international stage.
Through their experience and successful journey as professional dancers, they are now recognized as influential role models with
an ability to connect with a wide range of vulnerable or marginalised young people across physical, social and cultural boundaries.
Through Destino, their primary aim is to support young people from underprivileged backgrounds to develop
their potential and self-‐awareness through dance.
The company provides arts education for vulnerable youth, supports the arts scene
in Ethiopia and promotes Ethiopian contemporary dance.
