The brasilian Company has adopted a vibrant style, bearing the diversity of dance genres, the technique, the guts, and the energy of the dancers in its cast. 


the work developed by Mimulus is aimed at a wide range of profiles: different ages, multiple socio-economic backgrounds. The popular character of social dances, together with the technical accuracy of its choreography, results in great acceptance

The Company easily goes from stage to the streets being capable of pleasing the most demanding audiences in Europe and, soon next, the surprised passer-by downtown Belo Horizonte.
Theaters and monthly events are always sold-out. And a loyal audience always follows creations of new works and individual talents.

“This was dance with a human face, and superhuman energy.”
“Jomar Mesquita and his Mimulus Dance Company ought to be bottled and sold as elixir. Forget about Vitaminwater and Red Bull. For an hour on Friday night at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival here, the sassy, charming young dancers of this Brazilian troupe filled the Ted Shawn Theater with infectious wit and energy as well as intriguing dance invention.”
