2018 UK tour dates include:
The award-winning Zagorche Ensemble is an innovative and exciting group of young performers from the city of Stara Zagora, Bulgaria. Established thirty-four years ago, they have performed in every country in Europe.
Zagorche's performers come from every social background, and span ages from 6 to 18. They give a playful contemporary twist to traditional Bulgarian songs, music and dance. This tour involves more than thirty players, who travel with their insprational leaders, including choreographer / animateur Venelin Krustev and composer Kiril Todorov. The ensemble is seen as “an academy” because of the all-encompassing creative experience that this organisation gives to hundreds of children and young people in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria.
You'll get an idea of their wonderful performances from the following video clips:
