Helene Domergue-Zylberberg of Nimes, France, is a wonderful teacer of klezmer dance and a native speaker of Yiddish. Here she leads her dance workshop group in a Sher on board the Dnieper Princess River boat during the Klezmer Heritage Cruise of the Ukraine, organized by Josh Dolgin (DJ Socalled) and family in May 2007. Most of the dancers are of the generation that was raised in Yiddish and were already familiar with the dance aesthetics such as body posture and movements for Yiddish dance (notice - nobody is actually jumping...) A cracking band led by Alex Kontorovich leads the dance.
