Russian Folk Trio - "Moscow Nights"

Russian Folk Trio“Moscow Nights” is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized, prize- winning musicians from Russia. Over years, they have established themselves as one of the fastest rising folk groups in the U.S. These classically trained artists first took Western Europe by storm and now have brought their dazzling, toe-tapping music to North America. The repertoire is centered on masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the diversity of the culture, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate lyrical suites, to pulsating dance numbers. Russian folk music expresses the national character – outwardly reserved and cool but brimming with vigor, mischievousness and vibrancy inside. Their lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian folk traditions and culture. Lilting Balalaikas, dynamic Bayan Accordion, unique Trashotky & Loshky and humorous Dances combine for an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages!

Boris and Sasha Sptitckas are owners/dancers (Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Latham, NY) have their championship-dancing roots from Ukraine.   Ballroom dancing is not as culturally widespread in the United States as it is in Russia and other European countries.  Ballroom dancing has always been a big part of Russian culture. Dancing in general, including ballet and ballroom, are very popular among men and women in Russia. The dancing might be just for fun, but usually, it is highly-competitive.
