Russian Acrobatic Dance Festival

Last Friday, I attended a Russian Acrobatic Dance Festival in Chennai. It was free and fun. It was also an opportunity for me to exercise my photography skills. Without further delay, let me now allow you to enjoy the dance festival at no cost! (And please do forgive my photography. Still at amateur level.)

The festival was organised by Indo-Russian Chamber of Commerce & Industries as an exercise of friendship and cultural exchange. The event was decorated by the presence of late actor Shivaji Ganesan’s son Ramkumar as well as the Russian Consulate General stationed in Chennai, Nikolay Listopadov.

The event, predictably, began with the classical display of Bharathanatyam. And then a lot of peppy music and Russian acrobatic dance!

It seemed the Russian girls were just too happy to be performing that you could almost never catch them not smiling.

I probably wouldn’t mind attending the event again next year or so. It was a fun filled Friday evening after all. 🙂
