About Culture – Georgian Dance

Two beautiful bronze statues were recently erected at the entrance to the Djansug Kakhidze Garden, which is situated just off the Agmashenebli Avenue in Tbilisi.

The statues are of Iliko Sukhishvili and his wife Nino Ramishvili, founders of the Georgian National Ballet. It is due to their efforts that Georgian national dancing and music has become known in many parts of the world.

Three generations of the Sukhishvili family, now represented by Nino and Iliko Sukhishvili Jr., have dedicated their lives to Georgian dance.

The Georgian National Ballet has given more than 10,000 concerts in about 100 countries on all five continents. It has 80 male and 30 female dancers and 15 musicians.

The gliding, elegant movements of the female dancers combined with the fast spins, jumps, and sword fights of the male dancers make Georgian dance a dazzling spectacle for audiences.

The official website for the Georgian National Ballet has information about touring schedules, together with videos and photos.
