Ukrainian Folk Dances For You

I was honored to be an interpreter of a Ukrainian folk dance group from Luhansk.
The Ukrainian folk dance group was a participant of the traditional International Folk Dance Festival in Balingen and was invited by "Frommern" folk dance group from Balingen.
I don't know how many concerts the group gave during its stay in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Everywhere the spectators were very pleased and there was a storm of applause.
It was a great experience!

Festive and Solemn

The beginning of our group's performance: the Ukrainian Welcome dance.

Festival Stage

The stage was huge and the house was full.
The concert was long, but not tiring at all...

The Public Burst into Applause

I remember our final performance in the County Leisure Center.

Maypole Dancing

This traditional Maypole Dancing was great!
It was a real people's holiday. And the dancers were not professionals at all. They were all amateurs who have deep love of fold dance and convey their love and respect to people of other cultures....

Different Stages In And Outside Balingen

It was a caleidoscope of stages and halls where our group gave performances....

Warm Welcome For Us

We received a fine welcome and a lot of applause... Thanks, dear spectators!...

Folk Dances With A Lot of Meaning

Those were not usual folk dances.
They were developed and staged by Eugene Lissitsyn (+RIP+), a well-known choreographer from Luhansk, who had created those dances as a result of his great dancing experience. Those were dance stories indeed.
