Lior Haykeen, visiting choreographer
Lior Haykeen was born and raised in Haifa, Israel. She began her dance training at the age of four with classical ballet, jazz, lyrical ballet and modern dance. She started Israeli dancing at the age of 14, and hasn’t stopped folk dancing since. Now, after years of dancing at Keshet Chaim Dance Company in Los Angeles and teaching at a variety of Israeli dance events around the world, Lior devotes her free time to connecting children and young adults to Israel, Judaism and their Jewish community via Israeli music and dancing.
Lior will be working with the Orr Vancouver dancers and instructors throughout the year. She will also be conducting Israeli dance workshops at the JCC.
