Current classes and Workshops:
Deliah established her Workshop-series Contemporary Jazz in 2012 and now teaches it across venues in Germany and London. Her fluid, acrobatic and dynamic style has been influenced by her training with Joe Alegado and her teachers at Peridance Capezio Center (New York) and Iwanson International (Munich).
Expect an afternoon exploring Jazz technique combined with the fluidity of Contemporary Dance, an introduction to acrobatic elements, work on musicality and dynamic variation and space and time to express yourself through the choreography in the second part of the Workshop.
Inversions & Contemporary Acrobatics
A playful movement workshop giving you a chance to learn to be more comfortable in being on your hands and upside down. The workshop will help you build the strength and technique in working towards handstands and other arm balances used in Yoga and Contemporary Acrobatics. We will play with a lot of variations in this workshop, only requirements: Being open, being playful.
This is for you if you are a dancer, a gymnast, a yogi or simply if you are curious about movement and what your body can do.
Deliah holds regular classes in Classical Ballet. These classes are designed for Beginner and Intermediate Ballet students and emphasise on establishing a good technique and musicality. They can be used as a technical foundation for other more Contemporary styles or simply to work on technique, posture and body awareness.
As well as Classical Ballet, she also teaches Ballet Fitness classes which have more of a workout approach but can still be used to work on technique.
A full body workout mixing elements from Contemporary Dance, Ballet, Yoga and Pilates to work on strength, flexibility, balance and body awareness.
