Hye Bar

Hye Bar

The Hye Bar Dance Group was formed in January 2002 thanks to the successful collaboration between members of the Holy Martyrs parish and members of the AGBU Antranig Dance Ensemble. Hye Bar is devoted to maintaining and spreading the Armenian culture through songs and dances of our homeland. Currently, we are accepting dancers age 7 to 17 years of age. Hye Bar practices on Friday evenings between 7:30 and 9:00pm. All dances are choreographed by ballet master, Gagik Karapetian who trains the Antranig Dance Ensemble. The Hye Bar Dance Group is under the direction of Anna Simonyan. A love of Armenian dance and music bonds these dedicated dancers as they strive to perpetuate their cultural heritage.

In addition to performing at various church functions and fundraisers, Hye Bar had their stage debut at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in June of 2004 where they performed several dances during a performance by AGBU’s Antranig Dance Ensemble. Since then the group has had numerous performances in front of local audiences. In 2009, Hye Bar took the stage once again at Lincoln Center for Antranig’s 40th anniversary celebration. The group has also performed at Eisenhower Park for Armenian American Night, our annual Street Festival and other parish fundraising activities. Hye Bar is in the process of learning new dances for upcoming performances. It is our hope that the enthusiasm and dedication of the dancers, teachers, parents and committee members, coupled with the support of our church, will lead to many more successes in the future.
