In a strategic move in 2013, Lilia also formed a children’s dance group called “Unicorns”, where the children, once old enough, would join Rousichi as a career path, with the intention of ensuring Rousichi’s future.
In October 2014, during the Rousichi concert at the Darebin City Council Public Theatre, Alexander Ilyin officially and publicly handed over Rousichi to Lilia Dutova.
Shortly thereafter, in order to comply with current multicultural and accounting regulations, the Ensemble became an official entity. By a majority vote, Rousichi Dance Ensemble was renamed Rusichi, complete with a new contemporary logo and with fresh, newly designed promotional material.
In 2017, Rusichi found a new dance class venue, and moved out of Russian House in Fitzroy to Bentleigh East. This new location attracted new dancers to the Ensemble, giving young people in the south-eastern suburbs a great opportunity to experience Russian folk dancing.
