Aina And Her Passion

Dancing, especially contemporary dancing, has always been that one thing that makes Aina Amirah the happiest. For her, dancing ignites her inner flame, makes her feel alive and most importantly, makes her feel like, ­her.

As a hijabi female, Aina aims to change the negative perceptions that comes with donning a hijab while dancing. However, as a college student with a financially difficult background, her childhood dreams of dancing worldwide have always taken a backseat. As a child, she never had the chance to join any dance classes as other needs were prioritized. As a college student, Aina finally got her first taste at dancing contemporarily. She worked two part-time jobs to afford contemporary dance lessons, but with the ever-increasing prices for lessons, her plan could only sustain her for a couple of months.
