Hey there, I’m Afra Hines. I’m an actress currently performing at The La Jolla Playhouse in SUMMER; The Donna Summer Musical.
I'm originally from Miami, but I've lived and worked in New York City for the past 15 years after moving to NY to finish high school at the Professional Performing Arts school in midtown Manhattan. My first real gig was joining the famous Rockette line at Radio City Music Hall, and since then I've performed in 6 Broadway shows, danced with two professional sports teams, appeared on multiple TV and award shows, and been in a few music videos as well. Most recently, I was on the road with the 1st National Tour of Hamilton. Just prior to that I was part of the original Broadway company of Shuffle Along, along side Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Billy Porter and Joshua Henry (who I've actually done 3 shows with. Love Josh!) with choreography by Savion Glover and direction by George C. Wolfe.
Curiosity is what keeps you working steadily.

Some of my favorite TV gigs include Boardwalk Empire (Onyx Dancer), Mozart In the Jungle, and SNL. I'd love to get some straight plays under my belt, and am currently (and continuously) in acting and voice lessons. These days I teach more dance lessons than I take, but I am always striving to increase my knowledge and technique in all areas. I believe in the transformative power of theater. The power to reflect, and connect, and illuminate the common human existence. Let's make something!
