Khasan Brailsford is one of the housemates on Logo’s new reality series, Fire Island, but when he’s not splashing around at the beach he can be found dancing on tour with some of the world’s biggest pop stars.
“I saw a dance show when I was in high school. I saw Alvin Ailey,” Khasan reveals in a new video introducing the cast members of Fire Island. “I was really inspired by that. I wanted to see what do I have to do to be up there like that someday.”
Khasan began devoting his life to dance, taking five ballet classes a day for five days a week and more lessons on the weekends. “I was very determined. I knew it was what I wanted to do, so I went balls to the wall for it and never turned back.”
Now he is a professional dancer and has toured with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue and Jennifer Lopez. “I love the spontaneity of what I do,” Khasan says in the interview. “One day I can be working for Beyoncé, and the next I can just be chilling… then I get called to go with Katy Perry.”
“I do like how it keeps me on my toes and keeps me interested in what I’m doing. The only downside is that it’s hard to plan anything.”
“I’ve learned how to channel everything in life through dance,” he adds.
