CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Lena Helt teaches at DanceConnection and Urkraft. She gives private lessons to solo dancers as well as groups. She teaches everything from folklore, the kernel of all oriental dance with styles such as fellahin, saidi and melaya. It is in the folkloric dances that you can find the essence of beledi and the orientale.

Beledi demands an interpretation and a good ear, respecting both the music and spirit. Orientale is a gracious cabaret style that quite often is performed with a veil. It has strong influences from both ballet and flamenco. Shaabi is an up-beat style allowing the dancer to flirt and really comunicate with the audience!
