    Bio



    Ousmane Wiles, age 28, was born in Senegal. He began his training in West African dance at the age of 6 years old. He then joined with Marie Basse Wiles, a known master in West African dance. Ousmane continued his training with his mothers company The Maimouna Keita School of African Dance as a member of their children's company. He later became the assistant director of his mother's company, and his choreographic work was viewed by many. Venturing further into the world of dance, he found himself learning, training, and falling in love with other styles of dance such as Hip Hop, ballet, modern, pop, house, and vogue. Ousmane has been given the chance to work with many artists in and out of the USA, including John Legend, Zuma Zuma, Wunmi, Hassan Boukray, Lil' Mama, Estelle, Gala, Kesha, Kenya Moore, Cuba Gooding Jr, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Hudson, Gargon City & Rashaad Newsome. He adopted a stage name, aka "Omari Mizrahi". Ousmane is now working on creating his own style of dance blending African, Vogue, and House as one.
