Director: Dolgan Elizaveta

The Koryak folklore dance ensemble ‘Angt’ (in Koryak language ‘Holiday’) was organised in 2001 as an amateur group at the behest of the Koryak Regional Centre of Folk Art.

The repertoire includes dances, songs and rituals of the indigenous people of Kamchatka and the Koryak District: Koryaks, Itelmens, Evens, Chukchi.

The main backbone of the collective consists of former dancers of the ‘Mengo’ ensemble and the best graduates of the National Choreography Department of Palana College. The dignity of I.I. Zhukov is that his team is a real professional base for young people.

Currently, the ensemble is constantly touring the Kamchatka Territory, taking part in all events in Palana, is a continual participant in the regional festival ‘Golden Springs’, and the only annual nomadic festival in Russia, ‘Alluring Worlds, Ethnic Russia’, as well as in other cultural events in Russia and abroad.
