The Golden Gates is group of young talented artists from Russia, Georgia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan and more. Performers are picked from Public Schools, Cultural Arts Centers, Music schools and Colleges, Dance Academies in different countries. Each upcoming Group represents culture, traditions, music and dance of their country as part of Golden Gates program in combination with Moscow Nights Trio.
Golden Gates started to tour USA nationally since 2003. Each tour last for 4-5 weeks and covers 20-25 states.
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 for Russia and Georgia. Interestingly these two represented countries are so much in the media and most in the US only know them by news reports, which predominately negative and government focused. This is a chance for real people to meet and get a glimpse of these cultures. Not only do the performances provide insight into these diverse cultures but there is audience participation encouraged as well as some time to explain some background as well as answer audience questions.
In many of the communities these students visit, they are hosted in local family homes. This hosting is a learning experience for the visitors to this country as well as the Families they visit. Years after a visit, many on both sides of the ocean remain friends through the Internet. Several of the student performers have gotten the opportunity to be exchange students.
Summary: 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. To learn more go to the web site: RussianFolk.com and RotaryChildrensFund.com.
