Aïda is also the only Spanish woman who has earned a diploma in the Acogny Technique created by Germaine Acogny at the Ecole de Sables in Senegal. Only 20 people worldwide have this certificate, as it was the first and last time that Germaine Acogny decided to transmit her art.

Aïda has created the Lanla Project with Ise An Verstegen to expand the Acogny Technique internationally. It is an organization formed by dance professionals qualified in the Acogny Technique offering workshops and dance demonstrations based on it.
