In November the dawn meets the dask in the middle of the day
Our dear readers of video newspaper ART NEWS!
This issue is very special for us because it’s devoted to our 10th anniversary competition & festival of art AVE BOHEMIA!
When we began 5 years ago our festival was more homelike due to its atmosphere and the number of participants. During the decade of our past festivals a great amount of work was done and thanks to it we could manage to keep our main criteria- that initial coziness and comfort for our participants. On the other side we reached an international level and every new festival broadens the geography!
What we can about our 10th festival? Here we’d say a folk saying that we placed in the beginning of this issue can help us the best: as nature faces a period of contrasts in November, so was our festival where one can find lyrics and prose, ice and fire! Participants were of different age, styles and many cities. There were lyric, funny, amusing, sad performances- fit every taste so to say! But let’s proceed to facts and names.
Please watch a small piece from the gala concert. «Cossack dance», “Nevskie Zory” dance ensemble.
Grand prix of the 10th festival was presented to a dance ensemble “Nevskie Zory”, Saint Petersburg(leader Yana Dynko). Except for the well-prepared performance, we’d like to mention that this team specializes in gathering and preservation of Russian folklore. This kind of art isn’t that famous nowadays and we are glad that traditions of a Russian folklore are being preserved by such wonderful team!

This young participant of the festival can be found in Ukraine Guinness Book of Records as the youngest dancer who has ever danced the leading ballet parts in performances in Ukraine. Belorussia was presented by a talented young singer Maria Magilnaja, a finalist in Eurovision song contest.
We’d like to highlight the names of those participants who were with us during all 5 years! We remember each and every group and happy for this constancy:

One of the most unique feelings is to remember some of those participants as small kids and now they’ve changed age category, have become more professional and some of them even got married and changed the last name!
