I'm working with Karin Dance Ensemble teaching them Agar Magar, Khumkhuma, Hemshen from Rize, Jurjena and Dzaner Bar from Kharbert, Khorkoum Loorke from Van, and others. On Saturday, October 15 I did dance research in Sisian in Syunik province. I visited my father's family from Shirag province. The weather is very cold and rainy at this time. That doesn't affect my focus. I've also been working with Bert Dance Ensemble and their director, Karin Gevorkyan. My colleauge, Artoosh Karapetyan, professor of Armenian Song and Dance, travels with me. He's now 88 years old and still going strong. Sunday I'll go to the village of Nerkev Bazmabert in the Talin region to do dance research with the Moosh community. Check my Facebook page for videos. My 8 week courses will soon start in November in Los Angeles. Check the class page on this website for details.
