Following the successes of its performances and the hard work of the supervising committees, the AGBU-AYA Arine Dance Group attracts more than 200 young dancers, who learn about their cultural dance heritage. Under the guidance of artistic director and choreographer, Gayaneh Madzounian, the Group put on stage great performances: “The Golden Gramophone” (2012) and the “Call of the Highlands” (2013) which, in collaboration with the choreographer Gakig Ginosyan, paid tribute to the 110th anniversary of the great composer, Aram Khatchadourian. In 2014, the group put on stage the “Daredevils of Sassoun”.
