Bruno Beltrão was born in Niterói, a city near Rio de Janeiro, in 1979. In 1996 he founded his Grupo de Rua, which won numerous street-dance competitions. Beltrão studied philosophy and dance, and began to question the established masculine-defined movement structures and stereotypes of hip hop. He developed his own, analytical style, which combines street dance with contemporary dance. Grupo de Rua has been touring internationally since 2002, the year it first came to Tanz im August. Its works have received various prizes.
