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 acknowledgement 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 the 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...........................Hélio SantosHélio Santos is a Dancer, Teacher and Choreographer. He was born in Cabo Verde and currently lives in Lisbon.He is one of the pioneers of Kizomba dance and was a part of the first generation of Kizomba teachers, who were responsible for bringing Kizomba out of Africa and introducing it to the world.In his early childhood, Hélio danced the traditional dances from Cabo Verde, namely Coladeira, Morna, Mazurka, Batuque, Funana and Kola San Jon. Kizomba, or "Passada" in Cabo Verde, was something he always had by his side. In Cabo Verde, it is not taught, because it is a part of the culture of the country. Consequently, Hélio developed his own personal style in Kizomba, and his teaching methodology was personally developed as a result of his life path, and his experiences travelling around the world teaching Kizomba.Hélio concluded his studies at P.A.R.T.S. (The Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) and got a scholarship from the Calouste Gulbenkian.He is the founder of the project KizombaXtreme and also created a Kizomba DVD in 2015 known as "The 7 Pillars of Kizomba Xtreme".He went on to publish one of the first articles about Kizomba dance in collaboration with Guilherme, entitled "Elements Of Cabo Verdean Dances In Kizomba", which can be found on his website
