Went to see this show when we were on the St Petersburg to Moscow river cruise with Archers Direct. Really enjoyed it telling the story of Russia through dance without the need to know the Russian language. Don't miss it!

The Russian National Dance Show was an option on a Grand Circle Cruise on the Volga River. I would classify the show as a "don't miss." First, the setting in the hotel was optimal with good sight lines and sound. The show was beautifully presented with the finest of dancer/athletes I have every seen. Costuming was elegant. It was all presented within a loose context of Russian history.Spectacular costuming, lighting and set design. It was a wonderful evening.

This show was so captivating that we purchased the DVD to share with our family back home. Everything from the music to the performers, costumes, staging and choreography was first-class and high energy.
The theater is located in a hotel complex that includes shops, so arrive early to browse or purchase Russian-made gifts.
