Folkloric Group Rehearsal
Folkloric song and dance is a rich part of Moldovan culture and in my town I am very fortunate to have an active folkloric choir. The director, Natalia, is a music teacher at the local school and most of the members of the group are in some way connected to me (my host mom, my work partner, the director of the NGO for physically handicapped children, teachers, librarians, etc.). This group of women not only enjoys to sing, dance and overall have a great time but they also have become an amazing support network for me. This is a video of one of the many rehearsals they had at my office when they were gearing up for the big competition in Orhei.
