Svetla Mincheva, originally from Pazardjik, discovered the beauty of dance at the age of 7 as she joined the local ensemble “Albena”. This passion stayed with her all through high school after which she had to part with friends as she ventured into college life in America. After graduating and getting settled in Boston, Svetla rediscovered her passion for dance as she met some of the members from Ludo Mlado and joined the group in 2009.
