Dellaneira is highly recognized throughout the Mid-Atlantic region as a multiethnic, award-winning belly dancing professional based in Pennsylvania. She is recognized for her highly dynamic movements and theatrical skills and her goal, as a performer, to bond with her audience and mesmerize them with her performance. Dellaneira prepares high-quality, artistic shows to fit the individual needs of her clients, to captivate audiences, and surpass all entertainment expectations.
As a performer Dellaneira is described as raw energy. Fearlessly creative and boldly stepping outside artistic boundaries, she is constantly exploring new ways to further enhance her skills and the entertainment level of her performances. She thoroughly enjoys using her skills as a performer to combine the sensuality and aggressiveness in her dancing, while preserving the noble essence of quality belly dance performances.
Since 2000, she has studied the art of Middle Eastern Dance. Dellaneira initially trained in Egyptian Cabaret style of belly dance, and has added elements of theatre, martial arts, Kaleege, African Dance, Bollywood, Hip Hop and Tribal belly dance, in an effort to create a singularly extraordinary style of dance. She currently focuses on performing Fusion style belly dance, to bring her unique touch to her performances.
Dellaneira is honored to have performed alongside a variety of legendary belly dancers and musicians throughout her career. In 2011, Dellaneira was one of a select handful of belly dancers from around the nation that were chosen to contribute showcase performances to America’s History of Belly Dancers of Color, a film documentary produced by Samra Ya Raks. Music industry entertainers Dellaneira has shared the stage with are: Animus (an award-winning world fusion band), DJ Logic, Jason Miles, Bernie Worrell, and Jeff Coffin (two-time Grammy award winning member of Bela Fleck & the Fleckstones and the Dave Matthews Band).
Dellaneira feels that her crowning personal achievement within dance, thus far, has been when she combined her passions for live music, belly dance, and theatre, to organize her first charity concert. The event, entitled “For Darfur: A Night of Belly Dance and Music,” included some of the most talented belly dancers from the mid-Atlantic region, as well as music of Animus. The event, made possible through Phi Theta Kappa - Rho Upsilon, raised educational funds for children in Darfur.
