Through a combination of physical and trust exercises, partnering and movement combinations, and flying lessons, Diavolo classes challenge and enhance individual physical and emotional limits and emphasize the values of trust, teamwork, collaboration, physicality and artistry. We call it “Learning to Fly.”
Diavolo is founded upon trust and teamwork. As Artistic Director Jacques Heim states: “Building a team that allows for complete trust has been essential to creating a kind of work where dancers are inspired to leap, fly and fall”. The Education and Community Outreach Program has two goals which directly serve the Mission and the Artistic Director’s vision:
1. To generate a deeper understanding and appreciation of the art of dance.
2. To use the kinesthetic power of dance to develop trust, teamwork and collaborative skills, to encourage creative thinking and personal growth, and, where applicable, to enhance students’ understanding of history, social studies, math, sciences, and the language arts.
In order to achieve these goals, Diavolo has developed numerous educational workshops, residencies, and interactive school concert performances, that have reached over 100,000 students and adults in communities nationwide and in the Los Angeles Area. The workshops and residencies use specific techniques and exercises to develop trust and teamwork skills. In school settings, students can learn to apply these skills towards curricula based goals.
Dudley Flores was one of the very talented & popular instructors at Kosmos Music & Dance Camp this season. He performed his solo “My Story” for the entire camp in the amphitheater as a part of the evening showcase the camp offers.
He’s extremely talented as a performer as well as an instructor. I particularly enjoy watching him carve space the way he does. Very impressive young man.

Originating from Western Sahara in Algeria, growing up in a multi-cultural environment, Soha blends a variety of styles in her work. Mixing musical traditions from around the world, the prominent Cuban, Latin, jazz and soul influences, Soha gives an appealing vivacity to her sound. The soulful beats and warm equatorial flavours of “Tourbillon (Serre-Moi Fort Si Tu M’aimes)” contain a seductive quality, while “C’est Bien Mieux Comme Ça” creates a festive yet relaxed pace.
OMG, she has a Billie Holiday quality to her beautiful voice!
