The Idea:
The Action!

"Never could I have imagined the presence and impact that Fadayz would have on a group of impressionable middle school boys. They gained confidence, a sense of self and the ability to express themselves through movement and music. What a gift he has to connect with anyone at any age. The parents were jealous that there wasn’t a class for them! I’m psyched to continue our partnership and hope folks understand the impact that a person like Fadayz can have on a community!"

"Fadayz brought his incredible talent and enthusiasm to our Concord Public Schools' Teen Buddy mentoring program in January. His ability to connect with our children, ages 7 - 17, was phenomenal. His approach to instructional leadership, was to meet each child where they felt comfortable, and gently nudge them a little bit further out of their comfort zone.
He did this safely and artfully. His infectious smile and ability to be a role model for the children demonstrated how he was able to take his passion for dance, music and self-expression to bring people together, for deeper interconnectedness. Great program!
And the kids had a blast! So did the adults!"

"Fadayz

Whether he is teaching kids dance, making “beats” or using any of his other talents Fadayz always promotes self-expression which can stimulate kids self-confidence and growth while having a lot of FUN!  His genuine caring for kids also shines through.  He understands kids – he “gets” them – which allows him to really make a connection".
