“My Armenia”: “We are performing in Armenia for the first time ever”-Melanya and Cassandra Poghosyan

Melanya and Cassandra Poghosyan have traveled from the Russian city of Tver to participate in the “My Armenia” Pan-Armenian Festival organized by the RA Ministry of Diaspora. The sisters have been dancing in the Krunk Dance Ensemble of Tver for the past three years. They love Armenian folk dances. When they found out that there was a dance ensemble in Tver, they decided to join the ensemble and acquire more skills in performing Armenian dances. True, they have only been dancing for three years, but they have already given concerts in Moscow, Saint Petersburg and other cities.

The sisters say they spend their vacation in Armenia every year, but this year was special in that they were lucky to participate in the “My Armenia” Pan-Armenian Festival. They have spent a good time during the festival and have even made new friends. They spend time together and teach each other dance moves. They are a little nervous since they are performing in Armenia for the first time ever, but they assured that they would perform wonderfully in the Homeland because they are very excited.
