Golden Gates Dancers offers audiences an entertaining and authentic glimpse into Armenia
through music, song, and dance. The repertoire is centered around masterpieces of Armenian
Dance representing a diversity of traditions, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate
lyrical suites, to pulsating dance numbers.
Golden Gates has been building bridges across cultures through music and dance for almost a
decade. By introducing their culture to the American People, young cultural ambassadors get
great opportunity to learn American Culture, history and people.
This particular Tour Group will be comprised of students Armenia. This is a chance for real
people to meet and get a glimpse of Armenian culture. Not only do the performances provide
insight into this diverse culture but there is audience participation encouraged as well as some
time to explain some background as well as answer audience questions.
These touring groups over the years qualify and are welcome in many school systems around
the country and have performed in venues large and small across the country.
