Jewish and israeli dance group „ Klezmer” was founded in June 2007 in Cieszyn.
The first performance took place in 2007 in Cieszyn during the local Festival of Three Brothers.
Throughout the years we have performed several dozen times during the various festivals, concerts and events in many places in Poland and abroad.
Our group has got over thirty dances in it’s repertoire. They are not only Jewish and Israeli dances but also Hasidic- Yemeni- and oriental stylized. The dances are very diverse in their form and themes. From the very simple dances in circle to more complicated choreographic arrangements. Some dances reach out to the original source of their creation – giving praise to God, other speak of culture, feasts, customs or everyday life. We also perform the dance staging of traditional Jewish wedding, accompanied by live music of klezmer band called „Klezmak”.
Very often our performances are connected with workshops for the audience.
The group is led by Dorota Herok – a graduate of Christian School of Drama, Pantomime and Dance. Dorota has been involved in Jewish dancing for over fifteen years. She regularly leads workshops in many places in Poland and abroad. She develops her knowledge about dance during the yearly workshops in Israel where she learns from Israeli dancers and choreographers.
