A strong community - SLOVAK.CH

During this weird period due to the Coronavirus, our group ensemble has stopped all trainings and canceled all our performances for the upcoming months. Like many other people, we are also stuck in Geneva without being able to see our families in Slovakia or the Czech Republic. Nevertheless, we have build a nice and strong community that has been one of the many reasons to keep us going during this time. Checking web pages such as www.slovak.ch keeps us informed about new updates, as well as connected with other Slovaks and Czechs around Switzerland. Stay safe and we hope that, slowly, everything will go back to normal. Hopefully, see you soon!

June, lovely June

June is the month of fathers, of "finally it's summer" of watermelon and cherries and the month of multicultural festivals. 
This year we went to the bbq held by the permanent mission of Czech Republic and Slovak Republic at the UN. That was very special for us, just because dancing for our people and watching them enjoy a little bit of their culture while they have their home far away, makes us happy. 
Then, we attended for the second year, the Nendaz fête interculturelle where we danced but also we watched groups ensembles from Serbia, Italy and Portugal dance. We totally recommend you to attend this event every year, not because you can see us dance, but also it is very fun to look at the mixture of different cultures with their food, music and people. Thank you for this amazing opportunity, Nendaz!




What a fantastic beginning of the year!

We are pretty happy about this new year.
We started the year with TWO performances. They have been not only fun, but special for different reasons. 
Performance number ONE took place at home. We performed at the occasion of the carnival party for Slovak and Czech people living in Geneva. We performed our beloved Myjava and it was amazing to see how people experienced the dances in such a different way. We brought Slovakia a little bit closer to them! 







Performance number TWO was back in VEVEY! Where we performed last year. But this time in a beautiful building. The most special part was seeing perform some of our newest members (they did amazing!). We dance a new choreography from the region of Kyjov, in the east part of Czech Republic. We were very happy to be there one more time and we are already excited for the next time.  Here are some images from behind the scenes: 





Now we are back training new members and planning our next performances. The next one will be the 4th of May in GEN…
