Helena Kanini Kiiru is an Old School Jazz/Swing dancer, teacher and performer. Her favorite dance definitely is The Charleston!💕 The music, the joy and ecstasy of this African American dance for her is a spiritual experience! She feels like she gets to express some very deep parts of herself that she's usually shy to express in everyday life. This dance continually helps her to embrace herself, and to recognize the beauty of abundant African-Diasporic life, rhythm and movement.
As Helena has been both part of the Street Dance and Swing community, for her it's quite obvious that these worlds belong together, and she's very passionate about envisioning that possibility😍 She feels very privileged to be a part of a movement that wants to revitalize those ever present links through experience, roots and connects dancers back together.
