Welcome to the web page of Alumni of Folk Ensemble of Tartu University!

The Alumni group of Folk Ensemble of Tartu University has been acting regularly since 1995. We carry on mainly newly-made Estonian folk dances on stage performances, but we are closely connected to our authentic folk dances and to folk dances of other nations, too. Most of our dancers have come from the students' dance groups of Folk Ensemble of Tartu University. When you have been once infected by the 'folk dance bug' during your university years, you won't heal from it easily afterwards! And, of course, the easiest and most cosy way to carry on dancing is to continue with your own well-known university ensemble, only from now on in the Alumni group.

Together with the students' groups of the Folk Ensemble we perform our trainings and other activities in the Students' House of Tartu at Kalevi St. 24. Our trainer and leader is Aveli Asber and she is also the artistic director of the entire Folk Ensemble of Tartu University since the autumn of 2005.

We have taken part in all the major folk dance events in Estonia and the Baltic students' folk dance parties of Gaudeamus. We have visited an international folk dance festival in the other states of Europe almost every summer.
