About Helio and his workshop~~

"Connection is and has always been an important aspect of any dance, be it Kizomba(where it forms a major part of the dance), Salsa, Bachata or Tango.

Through Helio’s ‘Connection’ session, which is based on the concept of ‘Sibitchi Dance’, a concept he developed a few years ago,

Helio takes the dancer through a journey of self-awareness, a realisation, and an acknowledgment of the presence of the other.

‘Sibitchi’ which in Cape Verde (Helio’s home country) stands for a set of pebbles which represent a symbol of transformation of human suffering into creative energy.

It finds its origins in the rituals and dances of the slaves in Cape Verde during Colonisation. Dances that later formed a major part of Cape Verde’s culture.

Dancers that have experienced Helio’s connection session, have described it as an emotional, intense and deeply personal experience which seeks to lead the participants to express personal anxieties through dancing and singing.

An experience which leads you to be better, in life and in Dance"
