Bulgarian’s Zornitsa dancers – CNN’s Ralitsa Vassileva reports
We all know Ralitsa Vassileva – the Bulgarian face on the CNN TV channel. We all know her name and recognize her face; we have watched her reports on the Bulgarian National Television.
In the frames of the project “Autumn of Change” there is a special place dedicated to culture and Ralitsa Vassileva visited the rehearsal hall of Zornitsa Ensemble. The material from the hall was not included in the historical documentary movie because it was broadcast in a separate report on Dec 14th (1 a.m. CET+1) as part of the “World Report” Program and within the frames of the project “Autumn of Change”. Now the dancers (numbering 70-80) must pay a fee for the pleasure to dance and they must take care of the costumes themselves. No financial support at all is received from the official state institutions but Zornitsa has the freedom to choose its own repertoire and the festivals in which it would like to participate, says the report. In an interview with BTV and her report for CNN, Ralitsa Vassileva said “they win competitions – in Turkey and in France this year- and despite the bad conditions of the rehearsal hall and old costumes, they dance with gusto and enthusiasm.”
Let’s get inspired from the movie and make our new venture capable
