New Classes Starting Soon!

Dancing is one of the most beautiful ways to express oneself. Joy, sensuality, anger or grief - each dance can have it's own meaning. If you like to be in motion and enjoy learning new things, we'd be happy to meet you in one of our classes. Take a look around our website to get more information about our classes or stop by in person. We look forward to seeing you!



VEREA-Chicago Club, established in April 2010 to promote and develop the Bulgarian folklore dance in two main directions - groups of people of all ages to study and interpretation of authentic folk dance people and representative compositions for treating stage folk dance.

A key feature of the Faithful is the high motivation of the participants and their proactivity. A great advantage is also the independence of the club as a cultural entity! No commercial interests or whatever depending on the institutions.

At this point in VEREA are constantly involved about 60 people from 7 to 50 years old and are divided into three main groups. Performances are also basically two types - participation in national and international folklore festivals and stage performances with a representative or a competition.

The main creative purpose of the club and its leaders - K. Marinov I.Novakova is the different approach. First are the people, their needs and interests, and secondly - the authentic presentation of folk heritage in a highly competitive and commercial environment.

Building a community of people who love folklore, their communication through dance and emotions of performances and results ... all that unites us.

Dance ensemble of VEREA perform original choreography.
