Moses Diallo

Moses moved to Halifax 10 years ago from a refugee camp in Ghana. Moses grew up dancing urban Afrodances, hip pop and performing at local parties ( mostly crashing parties with his dance moves), where there is music and food you will find him there. Though Moses's first love was dancing he did not continue dancing when he arrived in Halifax, he turned to soccer.  Sadly his goal of becoming a soccer star was cut short due to a back and groin injury. 


That same year he decided to take part in the musical  "Fame" with his best friend Simon, which reignited his love of dancing. During the production of Fame, the director cast him as one of the male Tango dancers. After the production ended, Moses continued to attend Tango class which lead to discovering salsa dancing at a little club called Pipa and the rest is history. " It just felt right, though I don't understand what the music is saying, the instruments sounded familiar like something I had listened to growing up". Since that night back in September 2014, Moses hasn't gone a day without salsa music or dancing. While following his love of dance and music Moses began hosting Salsa Dura, from there he continued to grow as a dancer, Host and now an instructor and a business owner. Now the owner and director of Haliente Creative Studios and the Halifax Salsa and Bachata Festival here in the city.


Fun fact: Moses met his partner and the mother of his two kids salsa dancing. 


" I continue to invest my time, money and energy into this art because it makes me happy and I love knowing I've created a space where others can find that same joy"
