Fadi is a Syrian contemporary dancer and choreographer. After finishing his BA in Dance from The Higher Institute of Theatrical Arts in Damascus, Syria, he received an Erasmus+ Joint Master’s degree scholarship in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage (Choreomundus), that took place across Norway, France, Hungary, and the UK. During his studies, Fadi supported refugees and asylum-seekers in various roles, including running dance projects and providing Arabic interpretation for legal and housing issues for newly arrived young people and adults in Greece.
Alongside his artistic practice, Fadi works as a drama and play facilitator for ESOL students and unaccompanied minors in several charities and theatres across London. As Springboard’s Programmes Coordinator, he oversees the planning, operations and casework for each programme. He believes in Springboard’s ethos and effort towards young people and development across communities.
