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.
