Iliana Bozhanova & Todor Yankov
Since October of 2004, Iliana has been the director and choreographer of the 150 member Ensemble Voivodintsi, comprised of 8 dance groups, 4 of children and 4 of adults, as well as a female singing group. In 2005, Iliana was invited to serve as Dance Coordinator for the Folk Seminar Plovdiv-at the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. She has taught in the USA, Europe & Asia. Her repertoire includes such favorites as Yuta, Pleteno Horo, Adzhbelik, Shopska Rachenitsa, and Svornato. Another very important part of her life is organizing tours in Bulgaria for many of her dance students and friends from all over the world.
Todor Yankov discovered the accordion at the age of 16. He is also a wonderful singer. For many years he played with the Hisar folk orchestra at different holiday celebrations. He and Iliana have been working together with the Ensemble Voivodintsi and have traveled the world teaching Bulgarian dance. Their partnership has produced a remarkably flexible teaching method where the speed and repetition of specific dance sections can be varied according to the needs of the dancers.
