Handes! Armenian Dance Summit at the 2018 Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Join us this summer for Handes!, a summit of Armenian dance during the “Armenia: Creating Home” program at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. The Festival will take place June 27–July 1 and July 4–8, 2018.

During the second weekend of the Festival, July 6–8, Armenian dance groups and individuals are invited to participate in master classes with fellow dancers from Armenia and across North America, sharing technique, choreography, music, and experience. Groups will also have the opportunity to participate in and lead public workshops, sharing Armenian dance with Festival visitors. Selected groups will have the opportunity to perform on the main stage at the Festival. All are encouraged to participate in folk music performances throughout each day. The event will culminate on July 7 with dance performances and an evening concert featuring Armenian folk music.
