Today we’d like to introduce you to Fulani Bahati.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Fulani. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA! Dance has always been apart of my early life. I Used to do African dance in Leimert Park with my cousins at age of eight. Was the captain of the cheerleading team at my elementary from 3rd to 5th grade. When I was 11, my mom took me to audition for the Debbie Allen dance academy. Accepted with no formal dance training and the rest was history. I soon Knew what I was put on earth to do. Dance was my outlet, something that came natural to me and something I enjoyed doing.
Has it been a smooth road?
It started off smooth. In terms of the professional world. I was Signed to bloc talent agency at the age of 17. Every audition I went to I booked. I had zero expectations and I feel that was part of the reason things went so smoothly starting out. Booked my first US tour straight out of high school. So at this point, I didn’t know what rejection felt like. Till I experienced an illness that took me away from dance for two years. Once I was Healed and healthy auditions weren’t how I remembered them. So many new faces, dance styles changed and I received a lot of NO’s!
