Destination: Armenia – with Emmarie & Rochelle and Special Guests The Armenian Dance Group at UCLA

A couple of our wonderful volunteers, Emmarie and Rochelle, ended their popular Watermark University class, Destination: Armenia this Sunday with a grand finale presentation that showcased the beautiful country of Armenia, including a sample of a staple cultural dish and a special guest performance by The Armenian Dance Group at UCLA!

The Armenian Dance Group (ADG) at UCLA is a cultural organization on campus that strives to teach its members about the Armenian culture, history, music, costumes and traditional values through dance. ADG at UCLA is open to all students regardless of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, creed, national origin, religion, physical handicap, or campus origin. Founded in 2012 by 3 students, Lyolya Hovhannisyan, Paytsar Topchyan, and Armine Sanosyan, ADG at UCLA has since collaborated with many other student groups on campus and has been invited to participate in many events held both on and off campus including the annual cultural festival held by ASA at UCLA, the World Music and Movement Festival in 2013, The Student of Color Conference in 2013, and a Cultural Night hosted by the Armenian Youth Federation, Crescenta Valley chapter.

Destination: Armenia allowed our residents to immerse themselves in a cultural experience, right here at The Watermark, getting a sense of the sounds, flavors, and history of cultures from around the world.
