Georgian Dancers Push Their Physical Limits for Tradition

Georgian Dancers Push Their Physical Limits for Tradition

(bouncy, energetic Georgian folk music) (bouncy piano music) – [Narrator] Georgian
National Dance is a folk dance comprised of strong, athletic movements from the male dancers and
floating, effortless movements from the females. The unique choreography combines
folk with classical ballet and modern dance, and the company’s best are part of Georgia’s
original professional dance company, Sukhishvili. – Our dance company
exists more than 70 years and my grandparents
created this dance company. It was wholly due to them
that the Georgian dance became so popular in my country. Now our dance company
is more than 100 dancers and a live band. – [Narrator] The company has
traveled around the world, and since it’s creation,
has performed in front of over 50 million people. But preparing to take
the stage takes years of rehearsed practice. – [Nino] They need a lot of training, because we perform very difficult dances and complicated movements. We dance on the toes and
they have nothing inside. It’s like a thin leather boot. – [Nino] We use daggers and
swords through the dancings and they need to have
a good fighting skills. – [Narrator] To be a Sukhishvili
dancer is a huge honor in Georgia, and with a
school of over 3,000 dancers in training, the future
of traditional Georgian folk dance is bright. – I hope that Georgian dance
will be popular always, because it’s very patriotic. We do our job with a great love. We dedicated our lives to this. (chiming)

    What a strange music on background? I just don’t understand why the author puts some “ Bregovich style “ music on the episode where she introduces the very unique and very Georgian Dance . Also it is Sukhishvili with S not shukhishvili with SH !

    Good for Georgia to maintain its culture. Georgia is an interesting country and its location and a very nice country given its surroundings.
