The Karelians are coming to the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Saturday 13 July for International Day of Dance.
Dancers and musicians from this north-eastern Russia territory with Finnish roots are always a popular and colourful attraction on this special day and this year will be joined by special guests Belly Fusion, a tribal dance collective from Worcestershire.
Other troupes heading to the Garden are Dawnswyr Talog, Cwmni Dawns Werin Caerdydd, Dawnswyr Pen-y-Bont, Parti Dawns Aelwyd Aberystwyth, Dawnswyr Tipyn o Bopeth, Pembroke dancers and Garth Country dancers.
Day of Dance organiser Bobbie Evans said: “It is fantastic news that Skylark and Artforge, from Karelia, are joining us again this year.”
She added: “There will be scores of dancers performing all different styles in different venues around the Garden – it is going to be a lovely and very colourful occasion.”
The day will start with the Grand Parade up the Broadwalk followed by a mass dance in Millennium Square.
