Bulgarian dances in the UAE

Sonia Machorska

Two Bulgarian dance troupes participated in celebrations marking the Year of Tolerance and 48 years since the unification of the Emirates in Dubai. Both teams were set up in the Arab state – Dubai and Abu Dhabi. For the first time, the two folk clubs presented the beauty of Bulgarian folklore with the first ever collaboration between Zdravets and Bulgara and a local composer.

People from over 200 nationalities live in the UAE, for whom this unique country is their second home.
