Master Dance Class with Barakissa Coulibaly

SHAE Movement African Arts is proud to present a Master Dance class with Barakissa Coulibaly, a dancer/choreographer and teacher who hails from Abobo, Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire (b. 1978). She started her career in traditional dance in 1990 with Fotemogoban, an Ivorian dance troupe based at the Cultural Center of Abobo. She developed her signature style during the next decade, performing internationally with Djolem in Switzerland, Greece, France, and Germany. In 1998, Barakissa joined the company of Aicha Kone—the diva of Ivorian popular music and grand dame of Afropop—touring Cameroon, Gabon, Benin, Congo, Nigeria, and Burkina Faso.

In October 2012, the Center for World Arts at the University of Florida, Gainesville invited Barakissa to consult on the UF’s programming in African performance. Barakissa also choreographed a virtuosic group work, Wobe, for Agbedidi Africa with performances in Gainesville and Miami in fall 2012. In 2013, the generous support of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation made possible Barakissa’s travel to two sites of the Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium: Bates Dance Festival and the Center for World Arts, University of Florida. Barakissa served as artist-in-residence at the Bates Dance Festival in summer 2013. Barakissa is currently a Center for World Arts artist-in-residence contributing her signature style to Agbedidi Africa to perform at the UF Constans Theatre on November 16, 17 and 18; and at the New World Theatre in Miami on November 22 and 23.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
