Sasunik & Armenian Dance: Connection to Home, Culture & Identity

Join BCD in a journey to Sasunik, about 40 minutes north of Yerevan, Armenia's capital and experience an exuberant manifestation of traditional dance by local school girls. The country's ancient tradition of folk dance is a physical expression of making a visceral connection to the land, an expression of rootedness, of home, of community and of identity. Learn about the poignant history of Sasunik's founders' escape from the Genocide, the Armenian epic called the Daredevils of Sassoun, and the role of heroes in keeping our cultures alive.
