Marcelino Sambé is a force to be reckoned with in the dance world. For this talented artist, dance is not just a passion but a powerful tool to express his individuality and embrace his identity as a queer person.

From his early days in Lisbon, where he grew up as part of a small community of African immigrants, to his current home in London, Marcelino has found solace and strength on the dance floor.

Looking ahead, Marcelino dreams of a more inclusive and diverse ballet scene, where queer stories are celebrated and uniqueness is embraced.

Through his authentic style choices and hard work, Marcelino encourages others to express themselves and shine individually. His inspiring journey is a testament to the power of dance to transcend boundaries and uplift us all.
