Record number of folk dancers to converge on Riga this summer

RIGA, May 15 - The dance part of this summer's XXV Nationwide Latvian Song and XV Dance Festival will gather the largest number of folk dancers in the festival's history.

There will be 97 more dance groups than in 2008, with the number at 603, including 14 from Latvian communities abroad. Maruta Alpa, project coordinator for the large-scale production in Dauagava Stadium, notes the high quality of performance overall in the 603 groups.

"The mastery, feeling of adventure and plain joy when dancing that our participants exude in preparing for the Festival, is a welcome surprise," said Alpa.
