(Dunvayi World Dance) is a world-renowned Middle Eastern Contemporary Dancer, Choreographer, Instructress and Global Fusion Artist. Audiences from around the world have applauded her mystical and innovative dances and choreographies that are taken from the tradition of the countries she is representing.
Ms. Carella has delved deeply in the studies of dances from the Near and Middle East including Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, as well as North Africa including Morocco and Algeria. Her dances are both traditional and contemporary with a spiritual essence behind each and every movement that she creates. Some of Ms. Carella’s new works represent her on-going study and research of Sacred Movement and Ancient Hand Gesturing. Blending mudras and movements from India, China, Japan, North Africa, and Egypt, her choreographies represent movement rituals from the ancient to the avant-garde.Her dance background also includes studies in Flamenco, Indian, African, Samba, Salsa, in addition to other Latin dance forms as well as jazz and ballet. Ms. Carella created her signature dance form, Dunyavi Gypsy (Roma) Dance for which she is known throughout the world. The core of Dalia’s Dunyavi work is extensive research of the Romany trail, focusing primarily on the Roma dances of Spain, India, Turkey and most recently, movements from North Africa. Dalia has also been performing and teaching a second style of Gypsy Rom dance, “El Mundo”, that is evolving from her continuing studies of Middle Eastern, Andalusia and Latin dance influences.
