Sure, Minnesota is known as “the land of 10,000 choirs,” but has our singing tradition brought down an empire?

Singers from Latvia did.

Song and dance festivals in the northern European country and its Baltic neighbors Estonia and Lithuania helped rally those countries to declare independence from the Soviet Union, which Latvia did. in 1990. The “singing revolution” ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union the following year.

Now one of those festivals is coming to St. Paul. Around 8,000 Latvian Americans are expected to converge on the city for the 15th annual Latvian Song and Dance Festival USA.

“A lot of [Minneapolis-St. Paul festival] Organizers had attended the 14th Latvian Song Festival in 2017 in Baltimore and concluded that Minnesota would be a perfect location for a song festival because of our strong choral tradition,” said the chairman of the organizing committee of the festival, Ansis Viksnins.

The event takes place every five years and will feature concerts by ethnic Latvian and other musicians – ranging from choir and orchestra to Latvian rock and hip-hop – and dancers with colorful garlands celebrating the culture of the country. Film, theatre, visual arts, literary events and children’s activities are also on the agenda.

It all starts on Wednesday and ends on July 4 and should be a rewarding experience, even for those without Latvian ancestry. Some highlights:

Welcome concert: One of Latvia’s most famous contemporary composers is Ēriks Ešenvalds. He will be present for a concert full of his work, performed by two choirs, Anima from Saulkrasti, Latvia, and Magnum Chorum, an excellent choir based in Bloomington. Anima also presents its own concert at the Ordway Music Theater on Friday. (7:30 p.m. Wednesday, St. Paul’s Cathedral, 239 Selby Avenue, St. Paul; $29 to $49, free for ages 10 and under.)

Opening ceremony: In addition to dignitaries from here and abroad, this gathering will feature many traditional songs and dances from choirs, folk ensembles and dance groups. (1:30 p.m. Thursday, Great River Ballroom, Intercontinental Hotel, 11 E. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $19-$30, ages 10 and under free.)

Chamber and orchestral music: The Minneapolis-based Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra will be joined by soloists and chamber ensembles for a concert full of Latvian music from the last century. (1 p.m. Friday, Ordway Concert Hall, 345 Washington St., St. Paul; $25 to $40.)

Grand folk dance show: For sheer spectacle and energy, this is the main event of the festival. The floor of our state-of-the-art hockey arena will be filled with dancers from across North America and Europe, showcasing both traditional and contemporary moves. (4 p.m. Saturday, Xcel Energy Center, 199 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul; $10-$55.)

Latvian Rock: Akacis created a following among their fellow young Latvian-Americans in the 1980s with a sound that combined the two cultures to good effect. They will reunite for a show that will also feature one of Latvia’s most popular rock bands, Astro’n’out, and Latvian DJ Aiva, who incorporates a bit of hip-hop into the mix. (9 p.m., Saturday, Palace Theater, 17 W. 7th Place, St. Paul; $30-$60.)

Grand Choir Concert: At the culminating event of the festival, you can get a taste of what these massive choral gatherings in Latvia sound like. Several choirs will come together to perform Latvian music with an orchestra, including folk songs, both classic and contemporary dishes, and spiky patriotic anthems. (3:00 p.m. Sunday, Ordway Music Theater, 345 Washington St., St. Paul; $10-$55.)

The festival inspires citizens to be counted for national development, will be presented as part of the Museum Art Explosion program on June 24 at the House of Culture located along Shaban Robert Street in Dar es Salaam.

TNM coordinator, Edga Chatanda, said the main purpose of organizing such an event is to remind Tanzanians to participate in the exercise, its importance and its value for national development.

Chatanda said the four-hour stardom will be honored by two traditional dance groups, namely Mlonge and Righters theatres, both based in Dar es Salaam. Groups will engage in innovative traditional and contemporary local dances to get the message across.

When asked if such occasions are still limited with the number of attendees under guidelines issued earlier by the Ministry of Health a year ago as part of the fight against the spread of Covid-19, he said that since the ceremony would be held inside the hall, wearing a mask is an important aspect deemed to fight the pandemic as the number of guests would not be limited to allow for social distancing.

Museum Art Explosion is one of the most valuable programs initiated by TNM with the aim of educating young people on cultural issues and is involved with other activities such as traditional dance, music, drama, acrobat and exposure.

Other activities carried out under the program include art paintings and student learning about the natural resources exhibition, performances and many other historical subjects.

The National Museum and House of Culture of Tanzania is the first, largest and oldest of all museums in the country which inherited and preserved the collections of ancient finds and other resources of the King George V Museum of England since 1940.

The three-acre ground size of the ground area currently hosts four indoor permanent exhibits and manages six storage rooms for collections of rock art, archeology and human evolution, biology, ethnography, history and paleontology as well as a vault for an important national treasure.

Within the compound, there are also permanent open-air exhibition galleries in which an aquarium, tree and butterfly catching gardens, and historic state cars are kept for people to visit.

A post-show reception offers the public the opportunity to meet festival artists and other dance supporters over champagne and refreshments. The event, hosted by festival committee chair Anne Woodman, honors Don Grieco for his contributions to dance on MDI.

Grieco, a longtime advocate for island dance, a dance (and biology) teacher at MDI High School, and a member of the local dance group, Motion Collective, has facilitated island dance for decades and was instrumental in introducing Nimbus Dance for its first performance on Mont Désert in 2006.

This year, in addition to partnerships with local non-profit stalwarts Camp Beech Cliff and the Summer Festival of the Arts, the Acadia Dance Festival is expanding its educational reach by offering an intensive summer week for young dancers. The Intensive is designed for high school and college dancers who have previously studied dance and are looking to develop their technique, creativity and performance skills.

The crash courses will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 25-29 at the Criterion Theater in Bar Harbor. Students will perform original choreography during festival performances alongside professional dance companies. Tuition for the week is $500.

To make this unique opportunity accessible to young dancers from a wide variety of backgrounds, the Acadia Dance Festival will partner with community sponsors to provide scholarships. Up to $5,000 will be awarded in total, divided among dancers based on merit and financial need.

Newsletter Report

The Dance Eclectic of Las Cruces will present “Fringe Dance Festival: A showcase of Dance in the Borderland,” for two performances, Saturday through Sunday, June 25-26, at the Black Box Theater, 430 N. Main St. Performances are at 8 a.m. June 25 and 2:30 p.m. June 26.

Tickets are $15 for regular admission and $12 for students and seniors (over 65).

Reserve tickets by calling the Black Box Theater at 575-523-1223 to reserve your tickets or purchase tickets online at http://no-strings.org/.

The festival is “a creative and collaborative dance showcase” that brings together pieces from shows that Dance Eclectic has presented over the past six years, including its most recent show, “The Ring Leader”, as well as a preview of the the company’s spring 2023 show, said creative director Morgan Rivera.

“These pieces highlight the diversity of our collective,” Rivera said.

A special piece created just for the festival will also be included, Rivera said, as her husband’s (Francisco Rivera) cousins ​​Brahm, Dhaveed and Mauro Woody, all of Albuquerque, created an artwork for the show.

“Brahm and Dhaveed worked together to create a piece of visual art,” Rivera said. “Mauro then took this painted image and created music to match.”

After both were completed, Rivera said she began choreographing the piece. “This piece shows how art forms coincide with each other and create something beautiful.”

The idea for the Fringe Dance Festival was originally floated by Black Box Theater owner Ceil Herman, who wanted to have more dance performances at his theater, Rivera said.

“The Dance Eclectic seeks to provide opportunities for dancers of all levels, backgrounds, and abilities, as well as people who are simply creative and want an outlet to dance and work collaboratively with others who share similar passions,” she said. “The collaboration primarily focuses on creating a single creative theatrical production once a year that explores a theme or narrative that the members collectively agree on. These productions are highly collaborative, with each member having a voice in their creation, contributing original choreography, costumes and more.

“The age and skill levels of the dancers in the collective vary widely, with members in their teens, twenties and thirties,” Rivera said. “Some members have been dancing since they were 3 years old, some have college degrees in dance, and some have only found their passion for dancing in the last few years.”

We look forward to welcoming Pillow lovers back to the dance paradise that is Jacob’s Pillow and inviting new artists and audiences to experience this magical place for the first time.

HOW IT STARTED

In 1931, modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn purchased a New England farmhouse known as “Jacob’s Pillow”. (Shawn and his wife, Ruth St. Denis, were America’s first dancing couple and ran the Denishawn Dance Company.) At Becket, according to Jacob’s Pillow Historical Archive, he began an artistic retirement “in an effort to legitimize dancing in America as an honorable career for men. In 1933, he recruited eight men, including dancer Denishawn Barton Mumaw and several physical education students from Springfield College, for his new company.” From 1933 to 1940, Shawn and his Men Dancers toured the United States and Canada, Cuba and England, performing more than 1,250 times in 750 cities. During the summers, they held “tea lecture demonstrations” at the pillow. The group disbanded in 1940, as most of its members had joined the army.

How it all started: In 1931, modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn purchased a New England farmhouse known as “Jacob’s Pillow.” He then paved the way for making dancing an honorable career for men and became a major impresario, bringing dancing to mainstream America through performances and The School at Jacob’s Pillow.




Shawn, deeply in debt, rented the Pillow in 1940 and 1941. In 1941, British ballet stars Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin organized an international dance festival which was so successful that local supporters formed the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Committee, raised $50,000 to buy Shawn’s property and build a theater (performances had been held in the barn studio), and named Shawn director.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theater opened as the first performance space in America designed exclusively for dance.

THE 90TH SEASON AT A GLANCE

After two years of outdoor performances only, Jacob’s Pillow returns with 10 weeks of performances at the Ted Shawn Theater and 20 one-night performances on the Henry J. Leir Stage. with performances ranging from ballet and contemporary dances to powwows, hip-hop, house, tap, bustle, flamenco, zapateado, classical and folk styles. This summer’s program also includes three special performances on the grounds of Pillow.

Navi Mumbai: “Ghungroo 2022” Dance Festival to be Held in Vashi on June 18 | ANI – representative image

The All India Dance Festival ‘Ghungroo 2022’ by Sinddhu Nair, will be held on June 18, 2022 at the Auditorium of CIDCO Exhibition Center in Vashi from 1:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The music and dance event aims to bring harmony into lives and nurture the inner spirit by dispelling gloom and despair.

While speaking to the media, Nair said there couldn’t have been a better time than now to hold this dance and music festival, as normal life has been disrupted by lockdowns, economic downturns and the lack of social interaction caused by the pandemic. It is a great platform for all deserving artists to present their presentations with around 500 artists (classical, western and folk) under one roof.

Noting that the pandemic has resulted in the closure of theaters and auditoriums in recent months, which has impacted the performing arts industry, Nair wished artists and institutions would find new avenues to spread and preserve tradition. “We have dancers who come from all over India to perform different dance forms such as Yakshagana, Sattriya, Odissi, Mohiniattam, Bharatnatyam, Khatak, Kuchipudi, Garbha, Bhagda, Lavani, Sambalpuri, Salsa, Bihu, Contemporary, Bollywood, Semi-classical fusion and so on by many famous artists in the industry. The classical dance session was curated by renowned choreographer Guru Jayashree Nair,”
