Zeljko Jergan - Croatian Folk Dance
Željko Jergan is a renowned choreographer and teacher throughout the world. Since moving to the United States in 1986, Željko has created over 350 original choreographies for 70 different amateur, semi-professional and professional ensembles, including Les Sortileges, Brigham Young University, Radost Folk Ensemble and the Duquesne University Tamburitzans.
When he's not researching and creating new choreographies, Željko stays extremely busy working with the international folk dance community, where he is in popular demand for his depth and style in teaching Croatian folk dancing. He has traveled extensively both domestically and abroad, including folk dance seminars and workshops in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and Taiwan.
Željko has made a significant contribution to the Canadian Croatian folklore community, where he has been sought year after year to create original new choreographies for both the eastern and western Canadian Croatian Folklore Festivals. He also serves as artistic director for "Kraljica Jelena Folklore Ensemble," Kitchener, Ontario, and "Croatian Village Folklore Ensemble," Hamilton, Ontario, where he continually strives to elevate the level of authenticity and presentation of those ensembles. He is also the artistic director for the folklore ensemble "Hrvatski Tanac" and "Kumovi Adult Ensemble," of Pittsburgh and the "St. Anthony's Folklore Ensemble" of Los Angeles.
