Event Details

"Dance Your Story" is Delírio's way of celebrating her birthday. A dance fiesta shared with my favorite fellow choreographers aka storytellers-through-dance. This year's event is especially meaningful to me. Please help me help the organization that gave me a better chance at life. You'll discover part of my story, as yet untold, and how it has become the purpose behind my passion. Here's how the magic will unfold...

2:: DANCE BOOT CAMP- [Mini Lessons w Master Teachers!] Afro-Cuban | HipHop | Salsa Styling

3:: The Original DELIRIO™ Latin African Dance Workout

Organizer

Delírio™ Latin African Dance & Solidarity Events

Delírio™ is a high-octane, fat-burning workout that respectfully and effectively incorporates authentic (!) cultural dance. Sizzling combinations of salsa, merengue, reguetón and African dance deliver non-stop, heart-pounding action! The benefits? Smoldering curves and marathon-ready endurance. 


FYI: Don't be fooled by the fun: an average class burns over 750 calories. Eeeh... "Who says dancers aren't athletes?!"
