The power of dance with Kosta Karakashyan

Award-winning Bulgarian choreographer Kosta Karakashyan talks about the power of dance as a tool for social awareness, his dream collaboration, and how he mastered his artform. 

Kosta Karakashyan is a Bulgarian-born choreographer who started his dance career as a child being forced to do ballroom dancing. Since then, Kosta let go of the family tradition of being a doctor and ventured out to become an award-winning sensation who has worked with big names and even bigger brands. Throughout his career, Kosta has harnessed the power of dance to champion and advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights through dance and film. Kosta uses movement and creative vision to insight change, and shares with us just exactly how he does that.
