An Amazing Feeling

It’s an amazing feeling and experience to be dancing with Cheremosh in Bulgaria!  I am so lucky to share this experience with my sister and my Cheremosh family.  During the festival, it has been wonderful to be able to watch singers and dancers from various cultures around the world.  In Old Town Nessebar, we have been performing in a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre, full of history and culture.  It is challenging performing in the hot weather, but very rewarding watching the expressions on the audience’s faces while we dance.  The energy from the audience is contagious and flows throughout the amphitheater.  My favorite dance to perform is Edmonton Hopak.  Words cannot describe the feeling of dancing the final Hopak in front of the audience here, the ones watching live back at home and around the world.  It is truly a very special and once in a lifetime experience!
