“traditional russian dances”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

The Archangel Dancers perform when the large liners are in port – and usually have a performance at 9:30am and again 12:30pm. This is an all-female organization of volunteers who are highly skilled and committed to first rate performances. They give a variety of traditional Russian dances and usually do so in groups of two or four. Their performances are given in the Harrington Center which is a short walk from the fleet landing or from any hotel in town. There is a small entrance fee. When our performance was over, the crowd stood and cheered. The dancers are happy to come out after the show and pose for pictures and answer questions.

“Authentic Russian Dancers”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

The New Archangel Dancers are a local troupe, presenting shows in Centennial Hall for 40+ years. They are all women, altho they do the athletic Russian men's dances, as well. The performance is professional and polished. It is a lot of fun to watch.
