LIFE is not about obsessing over the past, it is about creating the future from where we are right now. It’s not about how we feel today, but how we WANT TO feel tomorrow.
What are some things in your life you want to improve? Or, is there someone in your life you’re worried about and want to see break through this year?

"COLORS OF LOVE" (Full version) Gorana Int'l Dance Festival "Mighty Mountains"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJOO3S0poh0
One year ago, I was deeply driven to use the art of dance and remind people that mutual understanding between diverse group of people, appreciation of differences, respect among all, collective creativity and love is absolutely possible. COLORS OF LOVE was created shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand with my Bulgarian and Georgian colleagues - great dancers from GORANA DANCE and Dancing Crane ensembles...Incredible people living in NYC trusted my idea and on Nov 3rd we premiered this soulful dance.
That example of comradely and friendship is what we need to repeat today, tomorrow and for years to come!

"Colors of Love" premiered during the Mighty Mountains Int'l Dance Festival in NYC on Nov 3rd, 2019. The two companies: Gorana Dance (Bulgarian) and Dancing ...

MIGHTY MOUNTAINS - Gorana 3rd Int'l Folk Dance Festival is made possible in part with public funds from [Creative Engagement or Creative Learning], supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.

Both the Balkans and the Caucasus are especially strategic regions of tremendous importance to regional security. The two mountain ranges are connected at the bottom of the Black Sea and have their capes Emine (Bulgaria) and Pitsunda (Georgia) looking at each other across the sea...

Both Bulgaria and Georgia have essential similarities in their cultural heritage. Among many, St George is celebrated in both places as the courageous one, Also, wine and dance accompany each holiday and community gathering, and the polyphonic male and female singing of each country is unique and highly praised around the world.

All of that and more inspired us to re-connect after last year festival and further our relationship by creating a new dance work called "Colors of Love" (music by Thomas Bergerson, courtesy by Extreme Music), whee we dance together. We had an amazing time in the process! Our dance space were filled with laughter and the sound of 4 languages: Bulgarian, English, Georgian and Russian in order to communicate the development of the piece. At the end the language of dance prevailed!

We would like to remind our audiences that borders exist only for political reasons, but the hearts of the people and their love to enjoy togetherness has none!

Last year’s dance festival called Black Sea Circle, where Dance companies around the Black Sea shared stage together (including Dancing Crane from NYC) gave birth of a new choreography “Colors of Love”( music courtesy by Extreme Music).

We further developed our relationship and created a new dance blending the two styles : Bulgarian and Georgian.

Join us on Nov 3 @ 3pm at the Riverside Theatre in Manhattan to see this unique collaboration.

Здравейте! Моля, заповядайте да покажете Вашето изкуство! Това са предложенията за Италия - Венеция и Римини - за Словения и Мармарис, Турция www.europeanartfestivals.com Надявам се фестивалите да Ви заинтересуват!
Здравейте, получихме тази молба от Даниела Иванова-Найберг. Моля, който желае да попълни анкетата. Благодаря. Здравейте, приятели! Подготвям текст, който е свързан с желанието на повечето любителски групи да представят наученото „за себе“ на сцена и пред публика. Но защо? Защо на сцена? Защо с костюми? Какви са мотивите на танцуващите и какво захранва това желание за сценична изява? Ще ви бъда особено благодарна, ако споделите опит, наблюдения и преживявания. Моля, споделете молбата ми и с хора, които биха откликнали. Ето линк към анкетата:
