Duquesne University Tamburitzans performing the Armenian dance of princesses
The Duquesne University Tamburitzans...however we also love perusing other books, folk dance videos and websites. How exciting it is to find other resources about one particularly favorite costume, such as the Armenian princess dress above and below!
|We love vintage postcards like the above!|
And see how alike it is to the rendition presented in the first picture by the 'Tamburitzans'!
Next: an example of Armenian women's dances....elegant, graceful, beautiful.
