The mission of Saints Cyril and Methodius is to support and conduct education of Bulgarian language, history, culture, folklore, and customs in the Twin Cities area. We do so through Bulgarian language and dance classes for children and adults, partnerships & events with other arts, music and dance organizations.
Our goals include:
- Preserving the knowledge of Bulgarian language, history and traditions among Bulgarian families and especially children
- Strengthening the Bulgarian community in the Twin Cities area through events and collaboration
- Reaching out to non-Bulgarians in the Twin Cities area who have an interest in any aspect of Bulgarian culture (cuisine, history, music, dance, movies, books, etc.)
Since we do not have our own premises to conduct our activities, we have formed and will continue to establish partnership agreements with different public and private entities to help reach our goals. We have interacted with organizations such as the Greek Orthodox Church „St George“, Ethnic Dance Theater, Tapestry Folk Dance Center, Minneapolis Public Library, the Roseville Library, Mounds View Community Center, BlackBear Crossings, and the Minneapolis Film Association.
