“Fayzah is a power house of dance knowledge and ability with years of multi-dance form and cross-teaching experience. With this background, she’s able to convey tango information in a clear, confident, and fun way. Plus, it’s always a great pleasure when I get a chance to connect and social dance with her as contemporaries in tango.”

Fayzah’s grandfather was Argentine, and through listening to tango music she feels a connection to some of her ancestors. While living in NYC, Fayzah developed her own solo tango fusion, combining elements of dance styles from North Africa, Arabia, India, & Spanish Flamenco, with Argentine Tango. She was invited to perform and teach workshops at Triangulo Studio for Argentine Tango, after taking her performance on tour in the United States and Canada. Teaching credits also include being on staff at Dardo Galleto Studios & teaching at the San Francisco Tango exchange. Fayzah has performed Tango with Neville Dance Theater Company, at the gala for the Newark Symphony, and at various theater shows and events. In 2015 she was invited to dance with Tango For All Dance Company. While living in NYC, Fayzah also ran an event called El Metejón, where she taught Tango classes, DJ’d, and held practicas and milonguitas.
 
During time spent living in Puerto Rico and Colombia, and traveling throughout Cuba, Fayzah refined her Salsa Dance Style, and deepened her skills and education in Afro-Latin based dance.
“I just wanted to say that Saturday (Tango X-Session) was one of the most uniquely fun dance classes I’ve ever taken!

“Fayzah: this is Maura from Triangulo… I wished to write to you to share with you how wonderful you are…Please know how challenging, but inspiring and awakening, our Tango Fusion work has been for me. I appreciate your patience very, very much…you are fantastic…thanks much, Maura.”
Maura Hays | NYC
I had an excellent experience with Fayzah’s tango class. Truly an immersive experience, I received personalized guidance and feedback on both tango skills as well as etiquette and a better understanding of the cultural that is tango. I took a group class prior, and found Fayzah’s class was much better at accelerating my learning, and was fun to boot! Would absolutely take again.”
Mark Swaringen | Texas
Fayzah is a fantastic tango teacher. I had no previous experience and have learned a lot in a single session in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She really knows how to engage.”

“Never have I seen someone so passionate and focused when it comes to their work and craft. Fayzah indeed, has an amazing capability of making you feel and understand the art of Tango. With her arsenal of multi talents in other arts and fusions, I strongly say that Fayzah raises the bar on top notch instructions.”

Teaching method:
Fayzah is a multi-disciplinary professional dancer, who has toured the world teaching workshops and performing for over a decade. As a classically trained dancer from a very young age, she offers a well rounded perspective to her students. She guarantees her students getting to higher levels of dancing faster by focusing on connection, breaking down the mechanics of movement, and creating fun and playful learning environments. She offers classes both from a technical perspective and feeling / holistic perspective.
 
Her thoughtfully designed specialty workshops, such as  “OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND INTO THE FREE ZONE”, give her students an opportunity to see where they get in their own way, and to overcome fears and self imposed limitations.
 
In addition to dance she also offers personal development, life optimization, emotional healing courses, getting people out of their comfort zones to expand edges of personal freedom and possibility.

I have taken other tango classes in Buenos Aires and then I attended Fayzah’s class: I have learned more in one hour with her than in one month in other schools! She doesn’t just teach you the steps, instead, she helps you to understand the concepts underlying the movements. She gives you a structure, focusing on how to lead (or follow) and manage your weight. She gave me tips that really made me understand how tango works!

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!
