Georgian Dance – The Eternal Celebration

The roots of the art form are lost in the depths of millennia. Its history is the endless strive for perfection. Dance is a specific form of spiritual culture that reflects reality in artistic images.

For millions of women, children, and men, all over the world, home is not a safe place and the only memories that are formed in it are painful ones.
