Faith Coleman is from Queens, NY, and has been dancing for about 16 years. As a young girl, dance always served as more than just a hobby. Dance was a way for her to express all feelings and emotions and allow her to find new ways to battle any challenges that came her way. Faith has experienced many challenging moments in her life and has used dance to fight against them. 

Faith started her dance training at age 2 in a local dance studio. She then moved on to train with Tommy Tibball at TKO Dance Academy in Ozone Park, NY. By age 15, Faith began to train with world-renowned dancer/ Choreographer and one of NY’s finest Kelly Peters. She joined his training program which then led to joining his crew, “Generation X”. Training under Kelly Peters and BrickhouseNYC helped Faith dive into the commercial dance world with training in various styles and also finding her true self through dance. Through Kelly, she began to expand her knowledge in aspects like freestyling/improv, NY dance history, branding, and more. Faith is now on her 5th year on Generation X and is now a Co-Captain.

Training, hard work, and dedication led to Faith’s first commercial job, modeling and dancing for Swarovski Crystals in an AD campaign. She then went on to do NYFW, HBO, Reebok, movies, and music videos. Faith continues to train and work hard and her achievements will only continue to expand and continue to push the limits. Her goal in the next year is to land more jobs, to expand creatively, and train even harder to become the artist she strives to be.
