  6. Dear Sirs:
    Thank you for your kind regards concerning the group’s letter applying for attending your festival. The acceptance of the group to the festival would grant the group an honor to present an impressive and artistic performance deserving the festival.
    The Abidar Group started in Sanandaj in Kurdistan of Iran. This group as the inheritor of the art of Kurdish dance has been active for over two decades. Continuous presence of the group in different international festivals and gaining the first place in these festivals are all manifestations of the group’s artistic performance of Kurdish dance as an art.
    It must be mentioned that this Kurdish dance group is NGO and receives no financial or any kind of support from the government. In spite of this fact the group has been internationally active for many years. Thanks to the international cultural interests of different countries which hold dance festivals the group has been granted the opportunity to have different performances as in the following festivals:
    1. Greece’s International Dance Festival in 1998.
    2. Russia’s International Dance Festival in 1999.
    3. Malaysia’s Cultural Week in 2002.
    4. Spain’s International Dance Festival in 2003.
    5.Attendig festival in france and spain in 2005.
    6. Korea’s International Festival of Game and Dance in 2008.
    7. Spain’s International Dance Festival in 2009
    and recently in Poland , Aug 2010 . We are eager to take part in your fesival again . Some pictures of our group have been attached . We are looking forward at hearing from you soon .

    Thanks

    DEAR FRIENDS

    WE ARE THE GROUP OF DANCES AZAHAR, FROM VALENCIA SPAIN.
    WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR MAIL INFORMING US THAT YOU WILL CELEBRATE ANOTHER FESTIVAL IN 2012.
    WE WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT CONDITIONS, ACCOMODATION, POCKET MONEY HELPS, IF THE GROUP WOULD BE RECEIVED AT THE AIRPORT, IF WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE BUS TRANSPORT DURING THE FESTIVAL.
    WE HAVE READ IN THE WEBSITE THAT THE GROUPS THAT COME BY FLIGHT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE TRANSPORT.
    IS IT TRUE?
    WE PARTICIPATED LAST 2009 IN THE FOLKLORE FESTIVAL OF BUYUCEKMECE, THERE IN TURKEY, AND WE HAD NOT TO PAY FOR ANYTHING. EVEN WE RECEIVED MONEY HELPS OF 600 DOLLARS.
    WE NEED TO BE ACCOMODATED IN WIDE PLACE, GOOD ROOM CONDITIONS, AND WARDROBES, BECAUSE OUR COSTUMES ARE VERY DELICATE, HAND-MADE WITH SILK, AND MUST BE IRONED EVERY DAY.
    WE HAVE ALSO PARTICIPATED IN FOLKLORE FESTIVALS, AS HUNGARY, POLLAND, BELGIUM, GREECE, CUBA, ITALY, AND IN TWO OCASIONS THE GROUP HAS WON THE PRIZE TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COSTUME IN THE WORLD.

    WE EXPECT FOR YOUR KIND ANSWER.
