Talia Leos has been living in Montreal since 2003. Born in Mexico to a family of artists, her passion for singing, dancing, theatre and teaching comes naturally. She is an interpretive dancer, choreographer, singer and actress, in addition to being a trainer, project coordinator, lifestyle and program manager, and she has now added holistic artist to her long list of talents. While she wears many hats, art has always been the common thread in Talia Leos’ efforts to serve the community: drawn to the fabric connecting arts and community service, she also founded a multidisciplinary association to benefit people with a disability, and actively participates in different dance, cinema and theatre festivals with the purpose of bringing Hispanic and francophone communities together. She offers services to everyone: she moves between teaching dance and acting as a cultural mediator for children, people with a disability, immigrant women, adults, and even the elderly.
Her social involvement includes sitting on various executive committees and round tables. She sees herself as a strong and resilient woman, particularly as a mother and immigrant: she advocates for respect and justice, considering them indisputable values, and does so with perseverance and innovation.
Over time, Talia Leos took training in counselling at the YWCA Montreal, created the collective Depiesacabeza and completed training in reiki, chakra dancing and energetic chanting. She holds degrees in dance, education and cultural mediation, completed a Master’s degree in Dance education research, is a certified Neurodanse teacher, facilitator and therapist, and also completed the Sens et projet de vie university program. She founded Talía Leos T de TransFormAction to allow people to achieve their desired transformation by means of a fusion of artistic and holistic disciplines.
