BIO: Coura N'Diaye was born and raised in Dakar, Senegal. As a child Coura enjoyed dancing and it was no surprise when she received a more formal education from Mansa Gueye, director of the National Ballet of Senegal. After arriving in the United States, she formed Sunugal Ballet in 1998 to promote and perform Senegalese dance in the Bay Area. A small subset of Sunugal Ballet performed in People Like Me 2002: Face to Face! She has performed in numerous venues and festivals internationally, including the 2001 San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, the 1999 Juneteenth Festival in Oakland, and the Santa Cruz Ethnic Arts Showcase. She has also collaborated with other Senegalese performers, including international acclaimed singer, Youssou N'Dour, in addition to other performers residing in the U.S., to produce the Keur Khaley Cultural Dance Concert in Oakland, CA. in 2000 and 2001.
