Instructor Spotlight: Yahya Kamate
Yahya Kamate has been teaching all over the country since 1994. He is former member of the National Ballet of the Ivory Coast. Yahya's love of teaching extends to all his students but he finds it especially gratifying to see boys who are reluctant to enter a dance studio learn to love dancing. Yahya teaches at CMDE, Alvin Ailey and lots of private and public schools in the tri-state area.
