FOLK DANCE GROUPS



THE ENSEMBLE FOR BULGARIAN FOLK DANCES “HORO” - from CHICAGO
was founded in 2003 by Irina Gotcheva and Todor Gotchev who to this day are its artistic directors. Irina graduated from the State School of Choreography in Sofia and from The Academy for Music and Dance in Plovdiv. She has worked as a ballet master and choreographer of Ensemble “Sliven” in Bulgaria. Todor is a master of the Tracian dance style and for years was the soloist of  Ensemble “Sliven”.

To the delight of the Bulgarian community in Chicago, Irina and Todor continued their creative work on American land, dedicating a lot of time and energy to building an ensemble which today prides itself in a very large and diverse repertoire.

Currently the ensemble has close to 40 members
– women and men, teenagers included, united in their love for the Bulgarian folk dance. Ensemble Horo presents dances from all major ethnographic areas of  Bulgaria – Severniashka, Trakiiska, Shopska, Dobrudjanska, Pirinska and Rodopska to the sound of pure folk music. Our dancers are dressed in a variety of colorful traditional costumes.
