Babacar Top / Topdance Company

Babacar Top is a Senegalese artist who began his dancing at a young age with Sabar in traditional ceremonies. His interest in storytelling through the body lead him to deepen his learning and seek out more African contemporary dance forms. Top spent four years as a company member with Compagnie Jant-Bi. He has worked with Regine Chopinot, Robyn Orlin, Mark Tompkins, Kristie Simon, Rosangela Slivestre, Rachel Erdos and Ido Tadmor. In 2013, he performed Bolero with Maurice Bejart Ballet Lausanne. He's worked in collaboration with the Association Kaay Fecc in Dakar to develop programming that exposes young dancers to a variety of dance forms. In October 2018, "Ibeu Lo" made its premiere in Belgium. He has taught and performed throughout Africa, Europe and the USA.
