World Dance, Street Styles, Tribal-Fusion –

“Fayzah’s work is innovative, original and truly one-of-a kind.  A theatrically diverse spectacle that pushes artistic limits and our preconceived notions of what dance can encompass.”
Brenda Neville (director of Neville Dance Theater), NYC 2012

“As a professional dancer for years, both teaching and studying with lots of great instructors, but I’m new to Popping & Hip Hop. I’ve realized that Fayzah is one of the best teachers I’ve come across. She’s somehow able to communicate the street/authentic feeling of the styles she teaches while also clearly breaking down construction and moves of pop, wave, tut, hiphop,whatever (not just teaching choreography); so that a beginner or seasoned dancer can confidently learn or deepen in their dance. I follow her everywhere because she’s the best.”          Meg Frodel

“It was so nice to join your class, I enjoyed dancing a lot. That is why I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful experience.”     Eriko, Japan

“I have been taking classes with Fayzah over several years. She is an incredibly gifted teacher and dancer, with a unique sense of the inner workings of nature. I would say that she is a queen of flow. She has a beautiful mysterious style, rooted in authentic ancient cultures. At the same time she has a very hip and modern alignment. Fayzah is a rare gift to the world. I am lucky to have her as my dance teacher.”    Luba Evans, Founder of Galiana Meditation Retreat

Out of your comfort zone & into the free zone workshop: “I realized that I will be dancing in a safe space where we are being pushed out of our comfort zones! Grateful to push through discomfort! It did feel great to openly and quickly push through feelings of tightness and restraint! Thanks so much for such a positive and exciting workshop!” Nora, NYC

“My body was craving a challenge, as I always seek to grow and explore new dimensions of myself, and movement.
My memory transported me to one of Fayzah’s live performances that I had the pleasure of viewing. Her fluidity,
grace and integration of fusion elements intrigued me. I decided to reach out to Fayzah and introduce my body to the beauty of her unique style. I am happy to share that Fayzah’s Fluid Tribal flavor is absolutely delicious! Fayzah, you have a beautiful energy that emanates in your eloquent dance and I thank you for all of your guidance, devotion and inspiration. You ROCK!!!!”
Jaklina, NYC 2012

that I have seen, that breaths new life into the form and strives for originality.”

of the female body.”

I’ve seen her grow over the years and become a skilled and experienced dancer and teacher in
both middle eastern, street styles fusion, and Argentine tango dancing.”
