  • Actors Fund Art Space
    160 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, NY
    4:00 p.m.
    Admission $20

  • This is a unique opportunity to explore the origins and social context of the vibrant and beautiful Georgian dances and songs.

    Georgian music and dances are very beautiful and exciting. They are also the embodiment of ritual, traditional social structure and ancient truths transmitted through rhythm, melody, dance styles and choreography.

    Enjoy this wonderful tradition in a program that will bring you inside these arts to understand more of what you see and hear. This intimate concert presents the kind of traditional singing and dancing shared socially among friends and family as well as in performance settings. The program will present archival footage of dances from the past together with dances and songs performed by some of Georgia’s foremost artists now resident with the Dancing Crane Georgian Cultural Center.

  • Presented by Dancing Crane's director Victor Sirelson, long-time student, scholar and performer in traditional dance and music and director of the Dancing Crane Georgian Cultural Center.
    with performances by the Dancing Crane Georgian Dance Ensmble, Zekari Men's Choir, Magnolia Georgian Women's Trio, City Song Trio and the "Georgia" childrens' dance ensemble.

  • Thank you New York City!!! We have received a grant from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

    Dancing Crane has completed a year's program "Community Arts Leadership" with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. This program has positioned us to have a much stronger organization.

    We have formed a new and more active Board of Directors!! One of our first orders of business was to set up a donation program through this website.
