Dalia Carella, of New York City, is a renowned world fusion artist, choreographer, master teacher, and the Founder/ Artistic Director of the Dalia Carella Dance Collective. Her rich background has lead her to make works utilizing both ethnic and contemporary movement. She is known for her explorations into cultural dance forms, her precise and seamless blending of traditional and modern dance in the theatrical context.
Dalia brings with her expertise in a wide variety of world dance, including: Flamenco, Indian (Bollywood and Bhangra) Afro-Haitian, Samba, Salsa, Bomba and Plena, as well as jazz and ballet. In 1985, she created her “Dunyavi Gypsy (Roma) Dance”, a signature dance form, for which she is known throughout the world. The core of Dunyavi work is Dalia’s extensive research of the Romany trail, focusing primarily on the Roma dances of Spain, India, Turkey and most recently, movements from North Africa.
