Moldavian Folk Dance Group “Vatra”

 

The Moldavian Folk Dance Group “Vatra” was formed in Montreal in March 2016 by Irina Kirka, a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer with 35 years of experience. All members of “Vatra” are adults from 30 to 50 years of age, and are immigrants from Moldova and Eastern Europe. They are united by a passion for dance, folk art and a desire to preserve traditions of the Modavian culture.  

The name of the group, “Vatra” means hearth and home. It’s a symbolic name for an eternity of folk art. Their first number is a Potpourri of Moldavian Dances.
