European Association of Folklore Festivals ART-CENTER - ALL FESTIVALS IN ONE PORTAL



Dear friends!


I sincerely welcome all the organizers and participants of the 5th International Dance Festival «SUPER DANCE from folk to modern»!

The language of the dance is easily understood and clear to everyone, it demonstrates national traditions and customs, helps to convey emotions and experiences, it is an expression of freedom and inspiration. The Festival becomes a meaningful and important event for all its participants, primarily because it gives young people the opportunity to test their abilities, to believe in themselves.

From the bottom of my heart I wish the participants of the Festival creative success, overcoming all difficulties and tireless energy in reaching new horizons, new heights for the benefit of our national culture!

«SUPER DANCE from folk to modern»!

Recently I have noticed with joy that more and more people of different ages and professions find time and energy to get directly involved with one of the oldest and finest arts — the art of dance. It is important that the Festival brings together both amateurs and professionals; those who favor folk dancing, and those who preserve the traditions of the classical ballet school, or, on the contrary, seek to realize themselves in various areas of contemporary choreography. I have no doubt that everyone will receive not only amazing impressions from one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but also an invaluable opportunity to exchange experiences, to engage in interesting and creative communication! I wish everyone inspiration and successful performances!

It is gratifying to see that this artistic event has become a traditional celebration of spring and dance, contributing to the revival of great traditions of the Russian school of choreography, enrichment of the professional horizons of its participants, exchange of innovative experiences in the field of ensemble performance.

This festival-competition is a notable event in the cultural life of the city, that attracts a large number of participants from the regions of the Russian Federation and foreign countries. Talented young people have an opportunity to display their talents, to say their word in the art of dance, to offer new ways of its development.

Hopefully, the participation in this creative forum will be a significant milestone in the professional career of young dancers, and the experience gained will allow them to go confidently to new heights, victories, accomplishments!
