FELIXSTOWE'S Spa Pavilion is to host Russian Cossack Dancers it was announced today.

Direct from Russia, the Volgograd-based Don Cossacks State Dance Company is coming to the Spa Pavilion Theatre, Felixstowe on Sunday September 14, when they embark on their first UK concert tour.

Theatre manager Julie Howes said: “Widely acknowledged as Russia's premier Cossack dance troupe, this world-class company of 40 dancers, musicians and singers brings with it a dynamic and breathtaking production that will both dazzle and delight theatregoers through amazing feats of highly skilled, acrobatic Cossack dance.”

The Don Cossacks have recently completed tours of Italy, Germany, France, Japan and the USA.

Miss Howes added: “Love, dedication and enthusiasm for their unique cultural heritage is the driving force behind this exhilarating company who, dressed in spectacular costumes, will perform an exciting two-hour programme of music and dance that portrays all the boisterous courage of the Cossacks through a kaleidoscope of sound and movement. They will retell tales of battle, glory, love and betrayal through inspired dancing and thundering rhythms.”

The Cossacks of Russia were legendary horsemen and warriors. It was through their music and dance that they unleashed much of their energy.
