Iveria was founded in St. Petersburg in 2002 within the Georgian community. Lead by director David Russia and choreographer Irakli Rusiya, the aim of the ensemble is to familiarize audiences with Georgian folk art and to impart to children a sense of tolerance and respect for other cultures. The ensemble's repertoire includes songs and dances from almost all regions of Georgia. Iveria is distinguished by its traditional, authentic approach which was the original idea of the ensemble.
