Dance ensemble "ekuu"

Verbatim "ekuu" is translated from the Even language as "Shining of the North". Indeed, the colorful costumes, plastic movements and temperament of the dancers fascinate. The dance group was formed back in 1978. Since 1981, its work has been led by a wonderful leader Galina Nikitichna Cheremkina. After her Zoya Fedorovna Sleptsova became a leader, who is an Honored Worker of Culture of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Under her, the collective received the title of "national". She became a mentor for many students of the dance group.

Now the director is a young choreographer Nina Gennadievna Sorkomova, who graduated from the Arctic State Institute of Arts and Culture. At this time, there are 30 people in the team. Artists dance, sing and play in scenes. In addition, on the basis of the club there is a children's folklore ensemble "Khonnachan". In 2015, the children's ensemble "Khonnachan" won the Grand Prix title at the "Polar Star" competition in Yakutsk. And the adult collective "ekuu" in 2008, participating in the republican competition, won the title of Grand Prix, and in 2016 became a laureate of the II degree in the republican festival "Yakutia Dances". They performed the composition "Dance of the Sun".
