Lavania Hajji

I’m Lavania, a freelance dance fitness instructor who always loved dancing since young but was advised against having it as a career. A decade into my passion, I now run a successful one stop dance, fitness and wellness company in Singapore, catering to individuals, groups and even corporates.

It wasn’t a planned foray that brought me to where I am today. While working with Singapore Airlines a few years ago, I was spotted by one of the instructors at a dance class that I was attending. That instructor turned out to be my driving force to pursue my dream. Not an easy decision to leave a comfortable job, take a huge pay cut and pursue my passion.

Starting off as a franchisee of Bollybeatz, years later I started Dance Embassy. From a one woman company, today I have a team of dedicated instructors, over 1000 students and counting and notable clients like Apple, Singapore Armed Forces, OCBC, Manulife, Allianz etc and I owe all glory to Father Almighty. My goal is to empower aspiring instructors and professionals in the dance, fitness and wellness realm and help them grow in their respective fields. To equip them with the necessary resources to grow their own community and following like how I’ve grown mine.

In 2020, I launched my Bollywood dance fitness program called BollyFreak in Mumbai and since then I’ve gained international traction and recognition. I believe that knowledge is powerful and it’s even more powerful when you share it with a tribe. Thus, I pivoted the business model of Dance Embassy and have positioned it as an integrated platform for dance, fitness and wellness professionals to grow their brand and community. I trust that with the support of our growing community, this will be a much fulfilling journey that I’ve embarked on.
