Akhtamar APG was formed by a small group of dance enthusiasts wishing to
promote Armenian arts and culture to the wider community.
The group has grown to include a children's and an adults' group and has had
many successful performances all over the UK in numerous cultural events and
dance festivals such as the Coin Street Festival at the South Bank, Dance
Around the World, the Eastbourne Folk Dance Festival, and the Milton Keynes
International Dance Festival.
Akhtamar owes much of its success
to its Artistic Director Arsen Zakaryan and his wife Karine, who have
persevered in their efforts to enrich the group's repertoire with folk,
classical and modern Armenian dances.
