Iris has been active in the dance world for over 20 years. Beginning with Indian classical dance, she devoted herself to flamenco, after which belly dance became her main focus. She is a member of the Zahira dance group but works also as a soloist and dance teacher. She has been teaching continuously in Estonia and also as a guest teacher/artist at festivals in Latvia and Finland. In addition to Oriental dance, she is teaching „Etno Dance“ classes, inspired by ethnic dances from different countries. Iris is also a member of the Estonian Chamber of Oriental Dance. Iris considers her most exciting dance experience the six years she spent dancing in the Middle East, where she also got a lot of inspiration to learn other dance styles and introduce new trends to her students. The fusion-choreographies mixing different styles by Iris are very popular among dancers!
