RICHMART FASHION SHOW is a part of a huge project which main goal is to familiarize the world with the traditional Bulgarian dances. Our big purpose is to focus on one dance from each folklore area /Dobrudjanska, Shopluka, Miziya, Trakiya, Rodopi, Makedoniya/ and give the world the opportunity to get to know our culture. The world already knows Sirtaki, Tango, Rumba, Salsa, and if we come together in one general idea we would be able to reach the same level of popularity and people would dance Kopanica in Buenos Aires', said Hristo Dimitrov for Nova TV.
