Currently, Selma is teaching dance classes and filling in for Blaya in some commitments, as Blaya's pregnancy has forced her to slow down her work pace. She is also planning to participate in a workshop for participants in Russia.

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Selma remains optimistic and strategic. She believes in reaching out to people and showing them that they can achieve their goals, no matter where they are. "Dance is my passion, my work, what I always dreamed of doing," she concludes.

Selma Mylene is a passionate and dedicated dancer who has made significant contributions to the Kuduro and Afro-house dance genres. Her work is characterized by a unique blend of energy, freedom, and a deep appreciation for her Angolan roots. She continues to inspire and empower others through her dance, teaching, and relentless pursuit of her dreams.


Selma’s dance style, which she describes as “very free, with loose movements, energy, and movements from head to toe,” has gained international recognition. She has taught thousands of students, first in a studio in Portugal and now online from Switzerland, where she is currently studying. Her online classes have attracted students from all over the world, including Chile, Japan, and Russia.

She has been recognized as one of the 100 most influential young people in Lusophony by the Neoafrican Academy. She views this recognition and the growing number of students and followers as an acknowledgment of her decade-long journey, which started when she was dancing in discos in Algarve.
