Each end has its beginning and transition. Periodic intermission where we all meet, all that has been fades and is saved. Time gives meaning and value to our actions. What would happen if we could re-visit the most crucial and greatest moments which have made us into what we are. How much old, lost or new is found? How many symbols, moments, world views, understandings, experienced could we list? Who makes decisions for us? Are all choices in our life only made and accepted by us?
According to a legend, little Helin was already dancing in her mother's womb, occupying a dance space there and causing various sleepless nights to both parties. Since then I haven't been able to stand still, and my life has become a permanent endless dance. The other side of me has been singing in the ETV music studio for 10 years and graduated cello playing from Tallinn Music School. My own composition is based on passion and people, a mixture of new experience and ancient winds, exciting ideas and concepts in an endless chain of change. Life for me is a dance in which everything has to be living, sharing, learning, developing and also unfocused.

I put my toes into the warm sea and think that it should reach both my ankles and the top of my head at the same time. I don’t know that before I haven’t jumped in. But it is terrifying to dive because I don’t know how deep is the sea. What if I drown there? Or get contused? What if the waves go over my head and I cannot get out? Will you jump in with me?
The sun is hot but I don't want to go yet. I want to be with you. Look into your eyes, hold your hand. In case we won’t arrive the same shore later.
I will give you this July Sun when I was so much afraid and didn’t know anything. When I was terribly afraid. When I didn’t know that the sea may be shallow.
I started from folk dance, but when growing up I became interested in contemporary dance and its different styles. I do think contemporary dance is closest to my heart, but lately street dance, in particular house has also captivated me. In my art and activities I try to combine everything I have come across.
