Sometimes she invents steps and combinations. She shows them to the others and works hard on them. Severina wants to study folk dance in University and then take care of young children by teaching them traditional dancing.”

This is what Mrs. Machkanova, the Director of the Social Service where Sevi lives, says about her.

We found the young dancer in the spring of 2019 and she has been training regularly for a whole year with the famous choreographer and teacher Nikolay Ibrishimov, who often tells us that it is a great pleasure to work with her and observe her development.

Thanks to the employees of Polygraphia Office Center, Groupama Insurance Group, The Stars Group, KOSTAL, Ubisoft Sofia and Ontotext, who have been organizing charity events for Sevi for two years in a row, she has the opportunity to follow her dream.

“Sevi feels unconditionally accepted ever since she started participating in the Program. Doing what she is best at, such as Folk Dancing, helps her to know and love herself, to be more confident, and to develop a behavior that is constructive for her.”

Ralitsa Miteva, Severina’s Mentor 

“Since my work with Severina started, I can say that there are visible results … when she hears the music and we hold hands to dance, her demeanor changes: she comes to life and becomes inspired. What makes me happy when talking to her is her desire to become a “Dance Teacher”! Quite an ambitious goal!”
