Dalia Carella Presents: The Magic Behind the Veil

Join us for an amazing veil workshop taught by Dalia Carella, Master Teacher and DCDC Founder/Artistic Director and Diane Hutchinson, DCDC Principal Dancer!

Dalia's unique approach to veil work is a study in the easy, sensuous expression of movement with fabric. The effortless beauty of her style belies the underlying core strength and technique necessary to execute it. In this workshop, technique wizard Diane will take you through a series of exercises to target, strengthen and activate your core--abs, back, glutes, adductors and abductors--and prepare you to tackle Dalia's veil choreography. Set to Beats Antique's "Caterpillar", this beguiling and challenging choreography is chock-full of balances, turns, leg lifts that will put your new skills to the test. You'll come away feeling sassy, sexy and strong after this class!! A 3.5-4 yard veil is preferred but if you are more comfortable with a 3 yard veil, that is okay. 

To get a little taste of my style of veil choreography, see the clip below from one of my weekly advanced classes in NYC: 

Place: Anahid Sofian Studio, 29 West 15th Street, 6th Floor, ring bell
