Amazing Helia, such a treasure for the Iranian culture...!
Thanks for the beautiful, fun workshop full of history and explanations...I am so delighted to pass a full day of enlightement through the most delicious movements of Iranian classical dance feeling being Sheherazad in the 1001 nights! I surrender my ballet techniques to just follow the soft movements full of roses and poetry of thousands years of iranian culture...!
And then, together we shared some visits of Montreal and talking about her fantastic initiative to collect and perform the Iranian soft and fine classical dance with beautiful choreographies! Workshop had a fantastic group of dancers who had done many other dances (the interest of living in a multi-cultural environement like Montreal) who had come from Montreal, other places of Quebec, even from Toronto! Bravo to the Fetival Access Asie and dear Helia for this exceptional private Iranian classical dance workshop that all of us entirely enjoyed it !
Helia told me that she was so delighted to see such a dynamic group of interested dancers who could let her teach more advanced techniques and choreographies. Some of the dancers asked even for more private workshops! Congratualtions dear Helia!
We are always delighted of our great opportunities here in Montreal to be able to do so many artistic activities! Helia invited from Holland to be a part of the festival and two full days to teach us dance with the most beautiful selected persian music!
Besides that Helia's naturally joyful character is magneting to copy on her exquisite movements and poses... an instructor who explains many times to make sure you have understood each of her moves! Thanks, merci, sepas Helia!
At the beginning and the end, Helia offers sometimes for explanations and questions!
