After a period as a hip-hop dancer, Amala Dianor enrolled in 2000 at the school of the National Centre for Contemporary Dance in Angers, and went on to work as a performer for choreographers in very different universes: hip-hop (Farid Berki), neo-classical (Roland Petit), contemporary (Emanuel Gat, Abou Lagraa, Sylvain Groud…) and Afro-contemporary (Georges Monboye).
