BODY BY DALEL
I am a professional athlete and trained dancer from Mexico City, who now lives and trains in Los Angeles. I am a true believer in living a balanced life through physical practice, mental focus, and nutrition. My passion for body movement and dance started when I was 3 years old with ballet. I trained ballet from the ages of 4 to 28 with numerous accomplishments. I danced with Monika Gintersdorfer in Germany and Cuatro x Cuatro in Mexico and others.
I eventually found my way to contemporary dance, I fell in love with the creativity and ability to manipulate my body in different ways and for different purposes.
After many performances on 5 continents and 8 countries I found my way to martial arts. The similarities between dance and martial arts, especially Kung Fu are incredible. I began to formalize my own style of dance entitled “Dance Fight”,
which is a combination of the physicality of Kung Fu and the flow of Passing Thru.
Because I train a cross between many physical practices I have experienced a gap that exists when training in gyms and movement studios. This gap has led me to develop my own training method entitled “Body Connect”. “Body Connect” mixes certain techniques of dance, martial arts, traditional training, futbol (soccer) and other disciplines of which I have acquired knowledge of over the years. Achieving an adequate and correct fusion of movement, to create fun and efficient training, “Body Connect” was developed for all body types. Your movement in your daily life should make you feel strong and confident and the “Body Connect” method guides you to a state of empowerment and personal satisfaction. Facing the challenges of in your everyday life should come with ease and grace, “Body Connect” will do this for you and was developed for both men and women.
With 10 years of practical experience as a movement coach, teacher and trainer I have been working with all kinds of bodies as high performance athletes, professional dancers, models, celebrities, children and teenagers. Some of my clients include; actress Lily Cowles, actor Michael Vlamis, singer Sasha Sokol, musician Miguel Bose, off-road race car driver Christian Weber, and fighter Carlos Morales. For Carlos I am in charge of his mobility, flexibility and physical conditioning, this year he was presented by ESPN as one of the most powerful young athletes in mma in California. Also this year I had the pleasure to movement direct Lily Cowles during her participation as one of the characters of the new “CALL OF DUTY” video game. Lily keeps physically fit training “Body Connect”. My clientele varies from pregnant women and post pregnancy women, to middle aged men, young adults, former athletes, and current athletes. I have a large clientele within the Jewish community both in LA and Mexico City.
