Sonia ‘SonYa’ Bel Hadj Brahim

Sonia Bel Hadj Brahim began dancing in 2004. At La Courneuve’s dance school TEMPO, under the direction of Pascal Luce, she discovered Popping. She is also a talented Soul, Locking, and Hip-Hop dancer.  In 2011, she became a pioneering Waacking artist, at a time when the technique was new in France. She competed in dance battles and was quickly spotted as a fresh new talent.  She is a member and co-founder of: La Mécanique des Naïfs (2011), Compagnie Bandidas (2014) and, since 2016, Collectif Ma Dame Paris. Since 2011, she has also performed for Compagnie Point Zéro, Compagnie Rualité, Compagnie par Terre, and Compagnie Chriki’z.
