She teaches and performs traditional African dance from West, East, Central, South and North Africa as well as Afrodance and contemporary African dance styles.  In 2000, she began her artistic career through acting. She joined the acting group Assassan in 2003, where she met her husband Kpoti Tokou. Together, they formed the dance group SIMDACA (SIMBA AFRICAN DANCE ACADEMY).
