19.06.2019
Kazakhstan
is a land of steppes, lakes and mountains located on the ancient silk route and is hooked to Europe with a crooked toe ...
but furthermore entirely located in Central Asia. It borders Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and the Caspian Sea.
Astana is the capital since 1997. The former capital Almaty is beautifully situated at the foot of the Alatau mountains.
The 'National Ballet Saltanat', founded in 1955, is one of the leading dance ensembles in Kazakhstan. Its repertoire is inexhaustible.

20.06.2019
Brasil
is the largest country in South America and also one of the largest countries in the world with Brasilia as capital.
The ensemble 'Flor Ribeirinha de Cuiaba', founded in 1993 by Domingas Leonor, comes from the Mato Grosso region,
one of the 26 federal states in Brazil.
Its capital is Cuiabá, where Raoni Metuktire comes from. He is one of the great tribal chiefs of the Kayapo people who
live in the heart of a protected reserve. He is the symbol of the struggle for the preservation of the Amazon rainforest
and of the indigenous culture. Despite the deforestation, Mato Grosso is one of the richest parts of the world in biodiversity.

21.06.2019
Russian Cossacks.

The Cossacks, since they were the border guards of the country in the 14th century, are considered as an important
element in the history of Russia. The 'Russian Cossack State Dance Company' from Volgograd brings us a program
with dance, song and music that reflects their struggle for independence, pride and bravery.
The program shows the life of the Cossacks, a cultural heritage of many regions in Russia: from
the Don river and the Black Sea to Siberia and the Far East.

22.06.2019
Peru
is the land of exotic jungles, an impressive coastline and the breathtaking peaks of the Andes.
It is a dizzying country where you can see and do everything. Whether you are doing the Inca Trail trek,
sleep in sleepy colonial towns, swim with dolphins or paddle through the Amazon in a canoe, everything is possible here.
The ensemble 'Conjunto Nacional de Folklore del Peru, brings us a colorful spectacle with sparkling music interwoven
with African and colonial influences. The compelling national dance 'Marinera' is definitely on the program.
