Abdoulaye is called "short boy" by everyone at the center because he is so tiny, but he has more confidence than all other students combined!
Abdoulaye lives with his stepmother. He had to drop out of school 2 years ago due to lack of funds. He has five siblings and lives with his brother. Abdoulaye wants to be either a doctor so that he can help his family if anyone becomes ill, or he wants to become a lawyer. His favorite dance move is an Italian pas de chat He can be found everyday after classes playing football in the streets with his friends. He also loves karate! Abdoulaye has grown so much while at MindLeaps. He is the leader of his class, knowing all of the terms and could teach the warm-up by himself. He stands front and center every class and listens to and understands every correction given in the dance classes. The younger group did the circle choreography class and he watched the last 5 minutes of it, and the next day he remembered everything he saw and was able to perform it for everyone.
