Now that autumn is here we are once more entering the premises of our “Temple of Art” as we humbly call our rehearsal hall it`s high time to welcome our new ensemble members. The week of the new groups in Zornitsa presented us with some 50 new boys and girls.

The first to enter the Temple were the boys accounting for more than 30 new men (the largest newcomers group the ensemble`s had for the last 10 years). Right after the initial exercises the boys were split into two groups – beginners and advanced levels according to the men`s capabilities. We are proud to note that the first group consisting of people that had danced on stage in a variety of other dance companies halved the routine of one of the most influential male dances – the Thracian youth (Trakiiska mladost). The second group started with the basics and danced a simpler combination of dance moves in the end.

The next day, on Wednesday, we welcomed the new girls who were more than 15, considering we were only hiring men. After the initial exercises the new women started with the routine of the temperament “Female shopski dance” (Zhenski shopski tanc) and almost finished it by the end of the rehearsal.

Meet our new dancers or come join them in the Zornitsa dance hall. The Men`s rehearsals are every Tuesday and Thursday the Women`s rehearsals – every Wednesday and Friday. You are also most welcomed on our General rehearsal on Monday. See you soon!12083996_1169697049712404_873648020_n1222DSC_0409DSC_0406

Our rehearsals

Our rehearsals Our rehearsals Our rehearsals

И така….всяка наша репетиция започва с т.нар. екзерсис. Тази странно звучаща френска дума буквално означава „упражнение“ и в танците представлява различни движения и танцови комбинации, подредени в определен ред, имащи за цел постепенното загряване на мускулите, раздвижване на ставите, развиване на танцовите качества и изграждането на необходимия характер на танца. Или с други думи преди всяко натоварване, трябва да разгреем…. А как изглеждат тези упражнения, ще разберете още утре в първите минути от репетицията си.

Ах, тези диагонали!!
Най-голямото предизвикателство за нас танцьорите…както подсказва и наименованието, със съответното основно движение в краката, често коренно различно и в ръцете, започваме да се въртим по диагонал като пазим център… доста трудно ни е, но с постоянство и упоритост всичко се постига! Гарантираме, че ще станете богове и на диагоналите!

Идва ред и на комбинациийките….влашка, шопска или тракийска….фрагменти от танци, които завършват загрявката – участват всички мускули, стави и части на тялото, хванати сме всички вече за колан и подскачаме ли, подскачаме…

А в същинската част на репетицията започваме да учим цели танци…първо на части, лека полека сглобяваме и накрая имаме цял танц…често ще чувате: „Още тринайсет пъти!!“, „Още един път, да не е случайно!“, „Джуфта-та-тадам- та…“, „Високоооо!“, „Краката в лост!“ и още, и още…

Много пот ще се излее, сигурно ще се ядосвате, но ви гарантираме, че ще се забавлявате и с много упоритост и труд ще се справите блестящо! Със сигурност ще останете очаровани от емоцията на танца, от магията на сцената, от споделените усмивки и истински приятелства, които ще откриете!

We`re expecting you!!
