National Dance of Siberia at the Lancaster Theatre
The National Dance Company of Siberia was founded in 1960, and has been a success from the very outset for its original manner of performing Siberian dances. A company of 50 accomplished dancers, their audiences are captivated by the vivid character portrayals, the musical movements, and the fanciful patterns of the choreographic design. The dances follow one after another in a kaleidoscope manner and are perceived as a single choreographic symphony and as a continuous stream of folk dance elements, now slow and thoughtfully smooth, now swift and sparking.
The Washington Post, in its review of the group, wrote that the “folk dances from Russia seemed broader and more effective than the dances of any other country, due to their choreography and cultural traditions. Words fail to express the deep impression created by the beautiful figures, swift movements and virtuoso performances including the smooth, gliding dances of the girls, the remarkable jumps and pirouettes of the men dancers.”
The Company has appeared in all parts of the Russian Federation, as well as in more than 60 countries. It has won enthusiastic applause from audiences in Mongolia, Korea, China, Viet Nam, Laos, Algeria, Syria, Tunisia, Yugoslavia, Poland, Germany, Hungary, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Japan, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, South and North American, in addition to many other countries.
