The “Nairian” Pan-Armenian dance award ceremony took place in Yerevan earlier this month.
Nine dance collectives participated in the competition. The dance collective of the Department of Dance Pedagogy of Armenian State Pedagogical University was awarded the Nairian prize which was given to Gevorg Tadevosyan, Dean of the Faculty of Culture at ASPU. On behalf of the lecturers and students of the Chair, he thanked the jury for the award and assured everyone that the award obliges them to have new achievements and to perform on bigger stages.
The Competition Committee awarded prizes only to state and honored dance collectives who have been promoting dance for nearly a century and presenting Armenian culture.
By the way, from now on the competition will be held on the International Dance Day (on April 29) and will have specific nominations.
