Jaleh Fallah

Founder & Director
Jaleh Fallah is the successful Founder & Director of Sheffield Dance school Dance Revolution, which she opened at the young age of 26. Jaleh is a highly experienced International dancer specialising in Salsa, Kizomba, Bachata, Belly Dance, and Body Movement & Styling. Jaleh is a competition winner, teacher, choreographer & performer both Nationally and Internationally. She also holds a BSc in Management from prestigious Business school at The University of Manchester, and hold 3 dance teaching diplomas in Salsa, Belly Dance, and Kizomba.

Dance Background:
Jaleh started dancing at 3 years old (1992), where her classical training began with Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, and Latin & Ballroom. She was also self-taught from a young age in styles such as Persian dance & Belly Dance (as well as other world dance styles). Her diverse cultural influences growing up encouraged Jaleh to train and study in her favourite dance styles from all over the world, later becoming professional in them. In addition, this early exposure to world music and dance allowed Jaleh to organically develop her own unique and natural dance style, and highly informative teaching approach.

Jaleh’s Teaching Awards:
Across the UK It is almost nonexistent for Professional Salsa, Latin or Belly Dance Teachers to be qualified in their chosen fields. However, Jaleh made it priority from the beginning of her school to gain credible and prestigious teaching qualifications in her specialised areas of dance. All three of her dance diplomas were headed by teachers who are world famous in these styles and have the best reputations, and experience in the business. Jaleh considers herself extremely lucky to now call these three amazing artists her mentors and has developed the school even further since beginning and completing her vigorous studies with them. Jaleh’s Salsa Teaching qualifications are with the internationally renowned Salsa expert – Dancer Susana Montero (Madrid), and qualified by the highly prestigious ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing). Her diploma in Belly Dance is with the infamous UK’s Josephine Wise Academy of Arabic Dance (JWAAD). And last but not least, Jaleh’s Kizomba Teacher Training qualifications were taken and completed with Kizomba legend Lucia Nogueira (Portugal) in May 2017.

Jaleh’s dance profile is extensive and diverse, and she’s known for her passion, style, and effortless body movement. She is insanely passionate about dance, teaching, and most of all her students. She is a charismatic performer and teacher who’s always in pursuit of spreading her love of dance and bringing the best out in her students and peers. She has dedicated her whole life to her passion – working 7 days a week.

As a teacher she pays attention to detail and adapts her teaching style and methods constantly to meet all of her students requirements. With a great understanding of people, Jaleh can easily connect well with her students and really cares for them and her development. She always teaches technical skills, as well as developing peoples confidence in themselves, and making sure they always walk away from each class happy.
