Daimohk Dance Group
The Daimohk ensemble has almost completely renewed itself over the last
couple of years, and the new intake of young dancers is busy training and learning.
Daimohk has been in great demand in Chechnya and neighbouring republics over
the last few months, performing at various events.
They also took part in an all-Russia talent competition ‘Delfiskie Igri’ in the city of Novosibirsk, Siberia in May 2008, where they won first prize.
3000 children from 74 regions of the Russian Federation took part, including 31 ensembles.
Daimohk received the highest number of gold medals – 31 in total!
This was a remarkable achievement considering the group has had so many new children join it in the last 12 to 18 months.
Many of the older boys and girls have left Daimohk to join the adult Chechen ensembles,
who are very keen to recruit Daimohk youngsters.
