Thank you to everyone who came out last Saturday to Fatou N'Diaye's class 

to support the first of Abdoulaye Sylla's classes!

This is a reminder that Abdoulaye Sylla will be teaching a series of Sister Fatou N'Diaye's classes while she is still recovering. Come and enjoy the dances of Guinea, West Africa, a somewhat rare opportunity in Boston.



Also, we are fortunate to have Kissema Dioubate visiting the N'Diaye family in the next week all the way from Germany!! Originally from Dakar, Senegal, Kissema is a former member of the Senegalese national dance company, Ballet La Linguire. Kissema has taught in Boston on many occasions to rave reviews. Don't miss out!

Kissema Dioubate will teach Sister Fatou's class on
Saturday, September 23rd at 4:30pm, $12

Please see the announcement below for more class information and Abdoulaye's biography. Sister Fatou is greatful to both Abdoulaye and Kissema for suporting her and we are greatful that Fatou consistantly brings master artists here for us to study with.
