Delírio® Latin African Dance & Solidarity Events

Delírio® is an explosive, fat-burning workout that respectfully and effectively incorporates authentic (!) afro-latin cultural dance. Imagine a Cuban block party colliding with NFL training! 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?!"


About the Founder--


As a journalist-activist, fitness expert, and professional dancer— Laurie promotes a healthy lifestyle for mind and body by teaching people how to “get fit from the inside out.” 


From African neighborhoods of Paris to Haiti, Panamá and the sugar cane communities in the Dominican Republic, Laurie has lived in, studied and documented the cultures that belie the dances featured in Delírio® Latin African Dance classes.  


Multilingual, Pillow resides in the Dominican Republic and teaches Delírio® throughout Latin America and the Caribbean and the United States. A dynamic university lecturer and speaker, she inspires people around the world to explore topics in dance history and social justice and produces Delírio Solidarity events to promote social inclusion and community action.
