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.
