Grachanitsa

Serbian Folk Dance Ensemble

Grachanitsa - Serbian Folk Dance Ensemble Grachanitsa began when a group of folk enthusiasts from the Boston area started exploring the rich heritage of folk dancing and music from different parts of the former Yugoslavia. The ensemble is led by Djordje Koldzic, a former soloist and assistant-choreographer with the National Folk Ballet of Yugoslavia "Branko Krsmanovich".

Grachanitsa dancers are folk dance enthusiasts from around the world, hailing members from the Balkan region, the United States, Canada, and all over Europe. Today, Grachanitsa has become known throughout the Northeast for its original choreographies, elaborate costumes, perfected style and attention to detail.

Sponsorship

We are committed to raising significant funds to benefit the Grachanitsa’s programs, to enlisting new supporters and to hosting an event that captures the essence of “Serb-dom” and the fun for which we are known.

The work of Grachanitsa is more urgent than ever before! Our existence enables us to spread our culture and demonstrate our traditions and ethnicity. Our youth has to continue to pass down our customs and hold onto our heritage. In this day in age, in the USA, it is more important than ever we continue to thrive so our children can be brought up with these traditions. Grachanitsa provides Boston Serbian youths and families a place to gather, connect and celebrate our culture. Your support will ensure our sustainability for years to come! Our vitality and exposure is essential to the good name of Serbians!
