Dancer and teacher. She started out modeling at Heatherley's School of Fine Art and later danced with the Ballet Rambert at London's Covent Garden. Born Liselotte Heymansohn to a Jewish family, she had fled the Nazis in the 1930s with her husband, a fellow dancer, Ernst Berk. During World War II she entertained British troops. She opened a women-only studio where she used her training as a dancer as the basis for an exercise program that became popular with the stars. Her clients over the years have included Joan Collins, Sian Phillips, Barbra Streisand, and Yasmin Le Bon. She divorced Ernst after 30 years of marriage and liked to say that she got tired of man after 13 months and had many affairs.
