International Baltic Ballet Festival 16 – 29 April 2010

Youth and national minority initiatives, education and integration progress society has started a new cooperation with one of the best known festivals in Latvia – the International Baltic Ballet Festival.

This year’ s International Baltic Ballet Festival is held between 16 and 29 April; the compact yet challengingly dynamic programme offers two weeks worth of contemporary dance events, commencing traditionally with an opening concert at Riga Central Railway Station at 5 pm on 16 April 2010.„For this year’s festival, we chose and invited dance companies capable of „shaking up” the spectators emotionally, encouraging and inspiring everyone to believe in themselves while [coping] with their everyday [problems]. The Georges Momboye Dance Company from France and Rasta Thomas’ dance group (USA) have performed on countless stages worldwide. Performances of both dance ensembles are going to become a revelation for the Latvian audiences: choreography as dynamic and energetically charged as theirs has never been seen in this country,” says Festival Director Lita Beiris.
