The Payson High School auditorium will come alive to the inventive moves of Russian Seasons Dance Company in “A Celebration of World Dance” at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 29.
Hosted by the Tonto Community Concert Association, the 20-member troupe will explore everything from athletic Russian folk dances to neo-classical and modern styles such as flamenco, tango, step dancing and Broadway.
The Russian Seasons Dance Company offers a breathtaking display of exceptional dance and precision choreography never seen before.
In 1991, Russian lead-dancer Nikolai Androsov left the Moiseyev Company to explore innovative dance ideas originating within the Ballets Russe fashion. His new company, called themselves the Russian Seasons Dance Company, and they gave their first public performance at Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow to great acclaim. The dance company has continued to enthrall audiences around the world ever since.
