Yatma Diallo was born in Senegal and has lived in Italy for 25 years. His first dance experiences, in Dakar, belong to the world of salsa and hip hop, disciplines that he has continued to cultivate.
He approached tango ten years ago through his first study experiences in Europe with Monica Maria, Susana Miller and Jorge Firpo.
He spent a lot of time in Buenos Aires to deepen his dance in all its expressive forms. In a few years, he managed to achieve interesting professional awards in the milonguero tango field, to which he has dedicated himself with passion. In relation to the didactic aspect, his experiences in other folk dances led him to convey to his students the rhythmic aspect of tango and its interpretative possibilities.
Since 2012, he has been collaborating with Monica Maria, carrying out an intense teaching and exhibition activity, and in 2013 he obtained a diploma for teaching dance at the “National Educational Sports Center”. He teaches tango and milonga in Milan, where he collaborates with Horca Myseria and holds technical seminars in various cities, both Italian and international (USA, Europe, Africa). Together with Monica Maria, he created the “Vela y Tango” project which, in addition to the stable tango school, organizes events and holidays to sail and study tango in the ports of Buenos Aires. He is also president of the Mundo Milonguero Association, which he founded in 2014.
