Yelena Raygorodskaya

One of the most charming women of the ensemble, Yelena Raygorodskaya used to be a big fan of «Zabava», and did not come to the rehearsals. But after the festive gathering in the City Park, she finally joined «Zabava» (2001).

Yelena graduated from Saratov State University in the English Philology Department. She worked as a teacher, interpreter, and translator. She also participated in different international projects. Studying and working abroad, Yelena contributed much to popularizing Russian traditional culture. Thanks to her friendly disposition, she established close relations and links with participants of folklore groups from all over the world.

Yelena is deeply fond of the arts, especially theatre; one of her hobbies is acting in amateur performances. As for traditional folk theatre, Yelena has played the leading part in the performance «Kostroma», her moment of triumph.

Yelena is inimitable in the traditional dance, especially in Siberian Quadrille and Terskie solo dances.
