Peniel was born in Port-au Prince Ayiti and studied music and dance at the L’Ecole Nationale des Arts (ENARTS). He danced with the National Dance Theatre of Haiti as well as the pretigious Balllet Folklorique Tamboula D’Haiti. Peniel is currently the artistic director of Tamboula D’Haiti as well as the founder of Kriye Bode. Kriye Bode in Haitian Kreyol is a call to participate- a call for assembly. In this spirit Peniel has been creating opportunities for professionals and amateurs artists young and old to come together to celebrate Ayitian Art. He has also been facilitating exchanges between Ayitian artists and artists from around the world. This includes hosting Ayitian Artists in New York City and personally guiding groups from around the world on educational tours around Haiti. Peniel is currently managing the build of the Kriye Bode Cultural Center in St.Marc Ayiti.

Peniel is highly regarded as a teacher because of his thoroughness, his kindness, and the individual attention he gives to students of all levels. He draws on his extensive knowledge of the history and rituals of Haitian folkloric dance to create original combinations within the different traditional Haitian rhythms. We are have to welcome Peniel back to Krik Krak.

All levels are welcomed. See you on the dance floor!

Krik Festival workshops are taught by Ayitian Artists that are masters at combining art and wellness. All the activities have been curated by the Create Your Well Podcast.
