The Dance group was established in 2000, the group is led by Karnig Nercessian, Dance Director, and Lena Orangian and Thomas Harutunyan. Yeraz dance group has made several small performances in the Eastern United States.
There are over 50 dancers ranging from the age of 5 to 20. All the dancers are taught basic steps. However, the ensemble is divided in two smaller groups. The younger group have more elementary steps and are less sophisticated than the older group's dances. Most dances are group dances; either all boys or all girls dance or a boys and girls dance. A few exceptional children are chosen for solo dances.
Yeraz Dance Group holds classes every Friday at St. Sarkis Church. Those who are interested in joining the new New York dancing sensation are invited to call the church office 718-224-2275
