Born in New York, Aisha grew up in a household of dance where her mom, Vicki Bails, was a professional dancer, model, actress and singer on Broadway. At the age of 19, Aisha was inspired to go to Hollywood in hopes to advance her career. The relocation paid off when she landed a gig as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers. During her stint as a Laker Girl, Aisha performed with Bette Midler on her hit show “Bette”, signed with an illustrious Hollywood dance agency, and within two days landed her first movie role. Those first few opportunities jump-started a long and impressive career as an entertainer and movement specialist. One that's now spanned more than a decade.
In 2003, well before social media, Aisha participated in a nationwide audition of dancers hoping for a chance to work with Beyoncé Knowles. Her charisma and talent landed her one of only four available spots. For more than four years, Aisha toured the world as Beyoncé’s right hand dancer, movement coach, dance captain, and assistant choreographer. That collaboration lead to Beyoncé winning several Grammy and MTV Music Video awards for the now and forever famous “Crazy in Love” music video. Aisha was the choreographer as well as the co-creator of the videos signature Booty Dance.
This was the introduction of Beyoncé as a solo act and the start of a period in dance where of a new more sensual dance movement of real women of all shapes and sizes was embraced. Much of Aisha’s work with Beyoncé centered on this movement. Aisha began teaching and elevating the intricate moves of a powerful yet sensual dance performance on heels.
It was Aisha’s work with Beyoncé Knowles that propelled her career as dancer, choreographer, and movement specialist. Other movement and choreography clients include Rihanna, Jason Derulo, Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland, Nicole Scherzinger, Miguel and Kristen Bell, Christina Aguilera, Julianne Hough on the movie Burlesque.
