Teaching, Workshops & Choreography
Talia is a highly experienced Flamenco Dance tutor and teaching is one of her great passions. She has taught people of all levels and ability, and is particularly interested in the transformative power of dance.
She has used with enormous success, the principals of discipline and rhythm to promote self-esteem and confidence in pupils. For this reason, she works extensively in schools, with children and young adults. Her workshops are immensely popular and have received extremely positive feedback from both participants and organisers.
She has led courses in many different schools and educational centres, including Drama colleges. Recently she designed and taught a 10 week course for students of the WAC Performing Arts and Media College in London, to produce a production of Federico García Lorca’s 'Blood Wedding'. She has also lectured and taught at top dance schools in Japan, Israel, North America, Italy and Ireland.
In 2007, Talia designed and participated, at the behest of WAC Belsize Park, in an ongoing project intended to familiarise students with the spirit of the work of the poet and playwrite Federico García Lorca, and choreagraphed all the dancing used in the production.
Talia has worked in numourous primary and secondary schools around London including Fortismere School, Rokesly School, Highbury Girls School to name but a few. Her work with children and young adults forms a very important part of Talias' favourite activity, as she uses dance as a disapline within itself and also a means by which people connect with they innate self confidence and imagination which has been found to have an enormous impact on all other areas of their lives including the ability to learn and assimilate other kinds of knowledge.
Talia believes strongly that dance is a powerful healing force and devotes a great deal of time to sharing her experience with newcomers to the art of flamenco.
Talia is passionate about bringing Flamenco to places that it may never otherwise have been brought for example; Prisons, Childrens homes, care homes etc
