Acclaimed Dancers From Le Ballet du Senegal To Teach In Los Angeles Nov 14-16
Published November 12, 2007

Highly acclaimed and celebrated choreographers Mariama Basse and Babacar N'Diaye from the globally renowned national dance company Le Ballet du Senegal are spreading their footwork know-how as the two East Coast performers are westward bound to Los Angeles to instruct Master West African Dance Workshops. The workshops feature Djembe, Kutiro and Sabar styles and will be held Wednesday, November 14 and Friday, November 16. Regular weekend classes in LA are also available (taught by Mareme Faye and Aziz Faye). For pre-registration and further information, email info@heliopr.com.

A former dancer for Le Ballet du Senegal, Mariama Basse has also danced for the Senegalese dance companies Gorée Mon Histoire and Forêt Sacrée. A new favorite at dance conferences across the US, Mariama Basse brings a fresh, young and purely feminine flavor to her djembe, kutiro and sabar dance classes. She is presently the assistant choreographer for the Maimouna Keita School of African Dance in New York City. Likewise, Babacar N’Diaye is a former lead dancer for Le Ballet and for the Diamono African Ballet. With his dynamic energy, creativity, and powerful movements, he entertains crowds and inspires his dance students. He is now the artistic director of Return to Gorée African Dance Company, and teaches regular classes in Baltimore, MD.
