22.10.'18: New website coming soon!
My name is Leila Bakhtali and I am a dance artist working throughout Europe as a performer, choreographer and (yoga) teacher. I have performed various works from many different choreographers such as Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, Wagner Moreira, Jorge Crecis, Siobhan Davies, Hofesh Shechter and Emanuel Gat and worked with companies such as Scottish Dance Theatre and wee dance company/Gerhart Hauptmann Theatre Görlitz.
After one season of working with the ensemble of Theater Ulm (Germany) I recently moved back to Holland where I continue my work as a freelancer. In the new year I will perform another tour of MAPPAMONDO, a dance and music performance for children aged 2 by Dadodans/Gaia Gonelli.
Besides performing I choreograph my own work, most recently shown in the collaboration with Ishtar Bakhtali who is a singer and voice artist. I also enjoy teaching company classes and professional training in the German freelance scene and since summer 2017 I am a certified Vinyasa Yoga teacher.
Looking forward to welcome you again soon on my new website.
