Nafisah started dancing at the Pamela Howard School of dance before joining the West London School of Dance age nine. At 16, she was awarded a DaDA scholarship and started training at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, where she graduated with Trinity’s National Diploma in Professional Dance in 2015. She is also an associate with Ballet Black.
This will be Nafisah’s second year as a company member of Chrysalis London. During this time, she has been involved in a variety of performances including; an exclusive rooftop event at Shoreditch House, another at Soho Farmhouse, the outreach program, an event at the Lilian Baylis Studio at Sadlers’ Wells and RISE at The Bernie Grant Arts Centre. Nafisah could not be happier to be a part of Chrysalis London. Alongside her work with the company, she has gained a BA Honours degree in Professional Practice at Middlesex University.
A recent and very exciting opportunity for Nafisah will be taking part in the Contemporary Finals for BBC Young Dancer of the Year in January 2017.
She has thoroughly enjoyed her journey with Chrysalis London so far, and is looking forward to an awesome rest of the year with them!
