Another hit of our folk dance groups are Gypsy dances that are often performed at different city festivities at the stage.
They use hand-made costumes and recorded Gypsy music that is so lively and breath-taking. The audience always bursts into applause.

Another hit among the local amateur dancers is the Arab dance that can have lots of variations and can be seen in any city of Luhansk region along with Turkish dances.

Kids are great lovers of folk dances.
There are several kids dance ensembles that have a good name and perform at different stages in Ukraine.
This one (on the picture here) performs a German dance at the city festival.

Girls are especially fond of dancing, even more than of singing.
They are very active at all school and city festivities such as City Day that takes place on the second weekend of September.
These girls had some rest before performing at the stage in Heroes Square during a City Day festival.
