Fayzah’s TANGO Biography
Fayzah has studied Tango extensively since she was a teenager, and was the first partner of Homer Ladas. Throughout the years she has studied with many renowned instructors, including Diego Di Falco, Geraldine Rojas, Quillermina Quiroga, Analía Morales y Gabriel Ponce, Chicho, Horacio Godoy, & Jorge Torres. In Buenos Aires, she also studied Tango Ensenario (stage tango), as well as Salon, Valz, and Milonga styles.
In 2003 Fayzah co-founded Tango Puerto Rico and started teaching tango classes in Santurce, Puerto Rico.
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 was cast as a tango dancer in several productions of Neville Dance Theaters “Nutcracker” and “Memento Muerto”, and has performed at the gala for the Newark Symphony, events, and theater shows. In 2015 she was invited to dance with Tango For All Dance Company. Fayzah runs an event in NYC called El Metejón, where she teaches, DJs, and holds a practica or milonguita.
“Fayzah was my first tango partner when I started taking tango classes in 1997. Back then, she was already an experienced and trained dancer in other styles and helped to accelerate my own learning curve. Today, 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.”
-Homer Ladas, San Fransisco
