The Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company of Siberia performs Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda.

Since its founding in 1960, the Krasnoyarsk Company has appeared in all parts of Russia, as well as in more than 60 countries around the world. It has won enthusiastic applause from audiences around the world through the vivid character portrayals, the musical movements, and fanciful choreography that transports audiences across the dynamic cultural landscape of the Company’s namesake.
