Hélène Domergue-Zilberberg (France; dance)

(Kh'ayèlè) was born in Paris to Polish parents and is a native Yiddish speaker.
After many years of involvement with French and international folk dance,within the past 8 years she has emerged as a leading teacher of Ashkenazic dance in Europe. She has taught for the jewish communities of severeal places in  France (St Etienne, Roanne, Montpellier, Paris.), Switzerland (Geneva) at the Klezfest in London, Klezkanada, lead the dance-work-shop of the cruize between Kiev and Odessa.
She has assisted Michael Alpert, Zev Feldman, Steave Weintraub, Andreas Schmitkes, Eri Bendix at the yiddishe-wokh'n in Weimar.

She is considered one of the finest exponents of Yiddish dance, most particularly women's dance style  ( j'ai trouvé ça dans la présentation de Klezkanada 2005 !) and has performed in the Ashkenazi wedding dance choregraphia, with the Klezmer ensemble "Kh'evrisa" in New-York (92 street Y) and Prague Klezmer Festival.
