The Arev Armenian Dance Ensemble was established in January 2015. “Arev” means “sun” in the Armenian language.  Our mission is to share our rich culture with both the Armenian community and with general public audiences internationally. Built on the shoulders of the successful Arax Armenian Dance Ensemble, our goal is aimed at preserving authentic Armenian folk dances while demonstrating the vibrancy of a living tradition.

The ensemble is available for both public and private and performances.
