Lia Pavlidis is a passionate dancer and a dedicated dance teacher, she is also a singer and performer, heartful communicator, energy worker and coach.
At home in her body, she inspires a deep connection in those who witness her move. Amongst her lifelong passions of mastering dances from around the world, Lia studied Rajasthani Gypsy Dance, Afro Carrebean, Release Technique, Qigong, Gaga Technique, Contact Improvisation, and fell in love with Dancehall, Hip Hop, and other progressive urban styles.
With a wide focus on the emotional, physical and energetic body in general Lia’s curiousity for movement and body language is endless. Her dance is always soulful, blending street style with a deeply spiritual inner power, connecting mother earth and father sky, with the tongue of an urban shaman. Her language is at once the new and the old, the known and the unknown. Born in Berlin, she explores the breadth of urban dance forms and the ancient ones equally in a global journey of discovery. She studied with Orchidaceae Family, Amy Sigil, Zoe Jakes, Rachel Brice and many more, and she always keeps on moving.
Lia Pavlidis has been teaching tribal fusion belly dance at motion*s since 2015. Together with Stella Caric she created and runs the Dance Program Berlin, motion*s very own intensive dance training.
