About this Event

Stars of the very best Georgian dance ensembles – Sukhishvili, Rustavi, Erisioni, Fire of Anatolia – perform their spectacular and stunningly beautiful dances under the banner of Brooklyn’s Dancing Crane Georgian Dance Ensemble. Georgian dancers are renowned for their sophisticated technique, unique dance style, and perfect execution of the most complex dance moves so that they look effortless. You will not be disappointed in this group.

The intimacy of the Gelsey Kirkland Academy theater space will give a rare experience of unity with these performers. The dancers will be joined by the equally virtuoso singers of the Georgian Zekari men’s choir and the Magnolia women’s trio, whose appearances throughout New York have excited audiences with the beauty and power of Georgian traditional songs.

The evening will begin with a dance panel discussion-demonstration led by Dancing Crane’s president Victor Sirelson with Kamala Cesar of Lotus Arts, Elissaveta Iordanova of Gorana Arts, master dancers and other prominent dance specialists exploring characteristics of Georgian dance from the perspective of a dancer. What is distinctive in a Georgian dance and in a Georgian dancer?

The Dancing Crane Company has attracted the best Georgian immigrant artistic talent for 23 years. Its home is the Dancing Crane Georgian Cultural Center in Brooklyn.

The artists are consummate dancers and singers who have trained since childhood with the best masters of the Georgian arts. Performers are artists from the Sukhishvili Georgian National Ballet, Rustavi State Dance and Song Ensemble, Erisioni Georgian National Song and Dance Ensemble, Fire of Anatolia, Georgian Voices, Sioni Cathedral Choir and other top professional Georgian ensembles.

The performance will include the war dance Khorumi, the dance on the toes from Svaneti, the couple dance from Ossetia, dances from Acharia, the classic Kartuli couple dance and many more regional and city dances. Songs will display the unique lyric beauty and power of the ancient Georgian polyphony as well as romance and city songs from the Georgian tradition.

This program is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council; and by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council.
