The Bulgarian folk dance group, Sharenitsa, is a part of the Bulgarian Learning Center in St. Petersburg, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and to promoting the Bulgarian culture, language, traditions and customs.
Since 2016 the group has been under the direction of Radostina Gerdzhikova, a well-known folk dancer and choreographer.
With a lot of enthusiasm the group learns and performs dances from different ethnographic regions of Bulgaria.
