Republic of Belarus: the group Javaronatchki
The dance group for children Zhavaronatchki was created in 1987 by Sergey Alexandrov, a professional dancer and folklorist, who is still the leader of the group. The little artists are engaging in the group when they are 5-6 years old and they stay until becoming adult. The group is composed of 100 girls and boys, in love with dance and united by a strong friendship.
Since 1900, the group received the honorific title for being a “model” group. This dance group is performing a lot in Belarus and it has already participated on different international festivals, such like in Bulgaria, Russia, Lithuania, Moldavia, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine and Estonia.
