A presentation concert of the Kyzgaldak children’s dance group took place last weekend at the Tamga House of Culture, Jety-Oguz district. Group members were dressed in costumes purchased with the support of Kumtor Gold Company. The gold miner contributed a total of 215,000 soms for the production of 30 new associated actors costumes.
This official event was attended by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus in the Kyrgyz Republic Victor Denisenko, adviser to the KR President Farid Niyazov, Parliament Member Irina Karamushkina, representatives of the Jety-Oguz administration, village residents and guests from the Kumtor mine and Bishkek office who brought along a festive cake and sweets, and handed over 150 copies of the Children’s Encyclopaedia in Kyrgyz and Russian.
The concert showed that the children can successfully perform in any genre. Specially for the presentation, they prepared the Kyrgyz, Russian and Belarusian folk dances performing every dance in new costumes professionally produced in the traditional manner of various peoples. Dressed in these remarkable clothes, the children produced an impression of a grand fest filled with the spirit of unity and concord.
According to the group’s art director, Mirbek Mamatov, the importance of Kumtor’s support for the regional group can scarcely be overestimated as children living in the remote areas of Kyrgyzstan are, in fact, isolated from the capital city where professional children’s groups enjoy every opportunity for development. “We are grateful to Kumtor Company for maintaining stable partner relationships. We should like to say, Thank you very much for the new costumes as they will enable the group to successfully perform not only within the Kyrgyz Republic but also represent our country abroad. Next year, on the eve of the 70th Anniversary of the Victory in World War II, our group is expected to perform as part of Kyrgyzstan’s team which will travel across Russia and Belarus to visit the places where the 385th rifle division formed in Kyrgyzstan was fighting during World War II,” Mirbek Mamatov said.
