Faizan’s Pas­sion

Slogan - - NATIONAL NEWS -

Faizan Ahab, an ar­chi­tect and an artist launched Is­lam­abad’s first dance academy in 2009. He of­fers com­plete pack­ages and crew ser­vices and has be­come the one-stop shop for all fes­tive oc­ca­sions in the cap­i­tal.

“It all started when I was con­tacted by some­one who had seen me train my friends for a dance ses­sion at a wed­ding, to teach a bunch of strangers for another wed­ding and then it never stopped”.

Ahab mainly teaches Bol­ly­wood style, con­tem­po­rary dance and finds sat­is­fac­tion in each step of his pro­fes­sion. He feels that danc­ing is con­sid­ered a for­bid­den fruit in Pak­istan be­cause peo­ple haven’t tried to ques­tion the con­vic­tions or sep­a­rate the vice from the no­tion. How­ever, peo­ple’s per­cep­tions, es­pe­cially the newer gen­er­a­tion’s, are def­i­nitely chang­ing.
