Fatimah Sadiq

Masacote Coach

Specialties: salsa on2, bachata, soca, compa, ladies styling 


Fatimah began performing when she started walking. She wowed crowds in talent shows, school productions, sang alto in church choirs and youth praise groups, and entertained in churches, community centers and nursing homes. In high school she collaboratively wrote, produced and performed a modern, urban reimagining of a classic fairytale: “Eastside Cinderella''.  Though her religious upbringing forbade her to dance, by high school she was studying jazz, hiphop, soca, compa, and pasada intensively. 


Fatimah discovered salsa and bachata in 2011 but felt something was missing. In 2015 she found her dance home with Masacote. She started taking Stage 1 classes and loved the fundamentals so much she had to be urged to move up to Stage 2. She took off with performance teams starting in 2018 and joined Masacote as a coach in 2021.


Fatimah brings spunk, grace and humanity to all she does. She still loves the fundamentals and enjoys personalizing every lesson and connecting with each student on a human level. If you’re feeling a little hesitant and shy, Fatimah is there with encouragement or a hug.


When not in the dance studio, you can find Fatimah meticulously caring for your pets as a veterinary technician, educating youth in a project-based learning school and, most recently, working in management with a small hydroponics non-profit. Fatimah breaks down complex topics and brings her shared humanity and love of music and movement to everything she does.


In 2022, Fatimah welcomed the newest MasaCutie, her son. He’s already got his salsa basics down and is her forever dance partner.


Notable Stages: Boston Salsa Festival, Salsa in the Park, Dante Allighieri Society, Museum of Science, ICA
