Gruppe Lejla Mehmedovic (Bosnien & Herzegovina)  
Mehmedovic Dance studio „Pop Lock"

Dance studio „Pop Lock" comes from Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was founded by Lejla Mehmedovic, multiple awarded dancer and choreographer with more than 20 years of experience. Lejla's huge dance experience comes from dancing with the biggest stars of balkan music scene, but also from acting or dancing in theater or on TV. She is often engaged in a theater play or TV shows like an expert of stage movement.
One of Lejla's biggest success is passing audition for Belly dance Evolution troupe, where she performed in their European tour in 2014.
She had her first class of belly dance in Tuzla, 2007 and she became one of the belly dance pioneers in Bosnia. From the beginning this dance studio was working on the promotion of belly dance and its positive health influence on woman's body and mind – and that has made contribution of artistic popularization of belly dance in Tuzla, and also in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
During the hard work of dance studio „Pop Lock", for small group of dancers training this type of dance became more than just recreation. They made huge step by making their first performance on the scene in the front of Tuzla's audience and later on they started to perform on festivals in region and abroad.
Lejla Mehmedovic won the first place on the competition Belly dancer of the World 2013, in fusion category and due to her positive experience her dance studio „Pop Lock" decided to present itself as a group on the same competition. It was not easy, especially because dancers have successful careers in architecture, low and economy. The challenge was to coordinate everyday work and obligation with long and hard trainings. Hard work of this small group of devoted ladies gave the results by winning three medals: third place in solo fusion category, third place in group fusion category and first place in classic category. Although this was just their second international competition, they could not believe the results they have made, based on the fact that this was one of the biggest orient festival in the world and that the competition was extremely strong.
What makes this group different and recognizably is their dance style that is consisted of classic style and modern dance forms, which are diverting and cleverly combined with interesting theatrical movements.
At the beginning, for the group, this was just the recreation and during the time this type of dance became constitutive part of their lives, lives of their families and friends, who gave them the unconditional support and help. Without their help it would not be possible to manage all the work obligation with long and hard trainings and performances.
They enjoy in this beautiful dance and in everything that comes with it – friendship, hanging out, traveling, creative process of making the choreography and costumes, even in stressful moments when nothing goes like it is planned. Belly dance connected them into one small family so much that they cannot imagine their lives without it.
„We want to send our greetings to German audience. Can't wait to perform on stage for you again! Last year we had so much fun, we enjoyed Duisburg, as well as your great Dance festival of Europe, so we are looking forward seeing you again. We want to congratulate Jouvana Leyla for great organization and enormous effort she made so this Festival could be one of the biggest and most prestige, not only in Europe but in the whole World. We are definitely sure that this isn't our last performance at this festival. You can follow our work on our facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/PlesniStudiopopLock/?fref=ts. "

Naureen (Vilnius / Litauen)  
Naureen 1st place Tribal Fusion at Thessaloniki Dance Festival 2016, 1st place Fantasy Oriental at 5th Cyprus Orient 2016

I started learning bellydance about 8 years ago in Lithuania, in studio "Orientalija". For the past 2 years I am living in Limassol, Cyprus, and practicing bellydance and Tribal fusion in different studios. I work part-time as a freelance translator and as a dancer on different events. In the recent years I have travelled to learn and perform on various dance festivals in different countries: Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, England, Germany, Cyprus and Greece. I have been learning and taking inspiration from such great bellydance and Tribal Fusion dancers as Dina of Cairo, Aziza of Cairo, Randa Kamel,Tito Seif, Moria Chapell, Mardi Love, Illan Riviere, Samantha Emanuel and others. Apart from bellydance and Tribal fusion I have also been practicing fire dancing, African dances, latin and contemporary dance.

I am very excited to come to Germany and participate on this wonderful festival :)
