Celebrating Atanas Kolarovski

Date: 
Saturday October 19
Time: 
Party from 7:30-11:00 PM
Venue: 
Russian Community Center

On October 18th and 19th, renowned Macedonian dancer and teacher, Atanas Kolarovski, will be in Seattle for 2 days of events — a dance workshop and party in his honor. Friday the 18th Atanas will teach Macedonian dances, and Saturday the 19th will be a party in his honor with live music featuring Dragi Spasovski and friends.

Each event has a suggested donation of $15 for adults.

Atanas now spends most of his time in Skopje, or teaches in the Midwest, so this will be one of the few opportunities most of us have to show our appreciation of his talents and gifts of furthering Macedonian dance and music.

Radost will perform an abbreviated version of the 15 minute choreography Atanas set on Radost on 1979: Makedonski Sobor


Line lead by Atanas Kolarovski & Ljupka Kolarova, with Mile Kolarov on the šupelka.
