About
Oriental dance festival
Waves of Orient

It all started with a big dream, few poor conditions, but a lot of work and courage. The first edition of Waves of the Orient was held in 2015., as the annual concert of our studio. We wanted to show what is it, to which we dedicate so much time and effort to and raise everything to a higher level. Every year we went a step further with the desire to learn from the best, we continued with the workshops of world famous instructors we love. We found great support from colleagues who share the same emotions towards this dance and who joined us on stage. That is how our project grew and in 2019. we celebrated our fifth year, the golden edition with one of the biggest stars from Ukraine, Diana Gnatchenko. Since last year, we have introduced an international competition of 5 categories. We have achieved a successful cooperation with the Student's City Cultural Center, on whose stage everything has been held for two years and one of the most prestigious hotels Tulip Inn. Our previous instructors were Nadia Stoykova (Bulgaria), Inessa Aruena (Serbia), Julia Farid (Ukraine), Noemi Bartos (Hungary), Kristina Derkach (Ukraine), Dominika Suchecka (Poland), Vladislava Sitnikova (Russia), Diana Gnatchenko (Ukraine). Our goal is to continue to promote dance in the best light and our dance community that does not lag behind the world one and has a lot to offer.
