On Wednesday we focus on empowering the Woman in the Woman Crush Wednesday column.

Of course this week , we take a look at an amazing dancer and choreography who has thrilled many people, danced with many artists, storm several stages across the country and out and above all inspired other young women to dancing.

Earlier this week Karawa Diary met to talk with her.

KD: Hey Aline, You look amazing today, thanks for having us

Aline Snuff: Thank you (she laughs) Am delighted to be here and talking to one of my favorite media platforms.

KD: You are our Woman Crush Wednesday, And you are the first Dancer we are talking to, As a dancer, what has been your drive, what made you choose dance as an art.

Aline Snuff: Its simply the passion i have for dancing, that alone is a big drive for me.

KD:Has your family been receptive to the idea of you being a dancer?

Aline: Sure, my mum especially, but it was not immediate. It came with the devotion and dedication I put into the dance. the circumstances surrounding my dedication and the achievements that came with time gave her no choice but to support me. This a lone is giving me great ideas to even go higher.

KD: Looking at Cameroon’s entertainment industry, can dancing put food on your table?

Aline Snuff: I don’t aim for just Cameroon…Cameroon is just 20% of my coverage ground as far as going round the world is concerned however as far as the Cameroon industry is concerned, people are still stereotype about the fact that dancing can actually take you places, unlike other parts of the world where it is held with so much honor, so, it’s not regarded with much value thus leading to neglect and low payment. But with proper branding as it is the case with any other art one  could scale through.

KD:What has been one of your most fulfilling moments in dancing since you started dancing

Aline Snuff: My most fulfilling period was during our international shows in Guinea Conakry and Ivory coast respectively With my team and boss Mr Leo…(#Teammrleo she shouts out)
