Passionate about dances from the age of 10, accompanying several great Malian artists on tours as a dancer choir, I now have a very good command of the rich and secular repertoire of traditional dances and songs from Mali. I first trained for 10 years in Mali in one of the most famous dance ballets in the capital Bamako called "Ballet Babemba" then in various dance ballets from West Africa including Burkina Faso, the Guinea Conakry and different styles of dance such as contemporary dance or acrobatic dances. For 10 years I have accumulated teaching and animation activities: family celebrations, training workshops for young people and adults, artistic projects related to the promotion and transmission of Malian dances with pedagogy. I also participate in festivals as a dancer.
