Salma Francoise Faraji

Originally from Tanzania, East Africa, based in Glasgow, I have taught and performed with multi-generational communities in Scotland. I perused a career as an Air Traffic Control Assistant, prior to volunteering in South America as a Human Rights Ambassador. I teach Aerobics with Soul ® The African Dance Workout, and through Contemporary movement & Stretch and Release classes, I explore how I can adapt exercises and choreography for my mature body.
I continue to develop a ‘One Woman Show’ inspired by the intelligence of British Sign Language to inform movement. Currently studying Level Two British Sign Language (BSL), I have also started a post-graduate certificate in Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Facing barriers has empowered me as a Dance Artist; being vulnerable, honest, and unafraid.
I embrace opportunities to work with the community as an invaluable understanding and continuous evaluation, finding both nourishment and challenges along the way. I am passionate about sharing time with people, whilst learning and being inspired.
