Helēna Tangijeva-Birzniece is a key personality in the history of ballet in Latvia. In her early career, she was a talented ballet dancer − one of the first to represent Latvian ballet in Western Europe. As a choreographer, she both respected heritage and embraced contemporary trends. She taught a number of Latvian ballet stars and left a strong mark on mid-20th century generations of dancers. Tangijeva-Birzniece interpreted Latvian folk dance in her choreography. She was one of the first directors of the national Dance Festival and certainly left an influence on folk dance culture in Latvia.
