AB Dance Company (Aurinkobaletti) will present their piece Beauty and the Beast at the Dance 4 Kids festival 26.3.-1.4.2017. Organized in Saint Petersburg for the fifth time, the festival gathers performing children and youth groups from all over Russia.
Beauty and the Beast is a fresh look at the old fairy tale, where all the magic is transmitted to the viewer through the power of dance, theater and animation. The choreographer Marjo Kuusela is well known in Finland as a pioneer in Finnish contemporary dance and co-founder of the oldest Finnish dance theatre for children, Raatikko.
Children from different cities will have an opportunity not to only see the Beauty and the Beast performance, but also to participate in master classes and to create their own dance piece with Finnish choreographers from AB Dance Company. The results of the master classes will be presented on the stage of the Hermitage Theater on the 1st of April.
