Children’s dance collective “Ruchejok” (“Ručejok”)
A children’s dance collective led by Tatjana Patmalniece has been operating since 2005. The little dancers by the learning the steps of Russian folk dance, have come up with the name of the collective “Ruchejok”.
As part of the Christmas celebrations, the young dancers performed at the Moscow House in Riga. Every year the ensemble participates in the Children’s Protection Day celebrations, Russian Culture Week, Maslenitsa celebrations in Rēzekne and other cities of Latgale. Every year the ensemble participates in the “Tatiana’s Day” festival, the little dancers have also performed in Daugavpils, St. Petersburg (Russia), Visaginas (Lithuania), Narva (Estonia). Like all artistic collectives of the Culture House of Rezekne National Societies, in 2013 the ensemble “Ruchejok” participated in the competition of Latvian minority artistic collectives and individual performers, as well as in the XXV General Latvian Song and XV Dance Festival on Minority Day “Source of the light” in Vermane Garden.
