Bulgarian Folk Dance Group “Rosa” has begun as a small group of enthusiasts, who got together to learn authentic Bulgarian dances “hora”. Throughout the first two years, about 25 authentic “hora” were taught. In 2013, with the addition of the Artistic Director VesselinVassilev, the group began working on choreographed dances.
While the majority of the dancers are focused on learning choreographed dances, the authentic dance educational program has continued its existence by the popular demand from the Bulgarian community. The teaching sessions are held by the members of the group. Currently, the participants in the program practice more than 50 authentic dances once a week. The program has been extended with annual dance parties “Horoteka”, which are open to the community and where the members enjoy life band performances. Everyone is welcome, regardless of the dance experience – from total amateurs to professionals.
