Arts on Tour presents The Lezginka Dance Company in a performance of traditional folk songs and dances, awesome acrobatics, sumptuous costumes, and riveting drum and saber work. Kings of Dance features 44 dancers in a broad variety of traditional, virtuosic, and modern dances reflecting the many cultures that make up the Dagestan region of Russia. This exotic, exciting dance company was founded in 1958 in the mountainous, southernmost region of Russia. More than rhythmic movement, their choreography conveys the noble endeavors of the Daghestan people, their heroic past, their abundant present and their promising future. Expressing boundless attachment to their native land, the dances reflect the power of human love, the people’s heroic struggle for happiness, and enormous pride in their country. The company’s stage interpretation of traditional folklore leaves an indelible impression on audiences while the wild, athletic energy of their dances leaves audiences astonished.
“The performance was electrifying, provoking and enthusiastically received by all in attendance. This was a group of highly trained dancers the likes of which I have never seen... In the first few minutes it became clear that the audience were about to experience one of the most spectacular dance programs ever to be seen in the Boston area.” - The Patriot Ledger of Boston, MA
