Russian dancers ready to step out at special Botanic Garden showcase
THE Karelians are coming to the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Saturday for International Day of Dance.
Dancers and musicians from this north-eastern Russia territory with Finnish roots are always a popular and colourful attraction on this special day and this year will be joined by special guests Belly Fusion, a tribal dance collective from Worcestershire. Other troupes heading to the garden are Dawnswyr Talog, Cwmni Dawns Werin Caerdydd, Dawnswyr Pen-y-Bont, Parti Dawns Aelwyd Aberystwyth, Dawnswyr Tipyn o Bopeth, Pembroke dancers and Garth Country dancers.
Organiser Bobbie Evans said: “It is fantastic news that Skylark and Artforge, from Karelia, are joining us again this year. There will be scores of dancers performing all different styles in different venues around the garden – it will be a lovely colourful occasion.”
The day will start with the parade up the Broadwalk followed by a mass dance in Millennium Square.
