Those high-flying, leaping, dancing Cossacks are headed to Australia on a concert tour that will leave you exhausted just watching them.

The Don Cossacks are from Russia with love. The Don Cossacks unique tradition empowers this sensational stage show! Breathtaking timing and accuracy, reflecting their absolute joy of life!

They're headed our way ON 5TH JULY, under the artistic direction of Sergey Shadioun, a former member of the Red Army Song and Dance Company of Moscow.

"Their dancing was acrobatic. Spirited and great fun ... their costumes exquisitely intricate.

Steeped in history, the Don Cossacks Dance Ensemble represent a freespirited folk culture began in the 15th Century initially to defend Russia from the Tatar.

Centuries later, the Cossacks are as vibrant and as athletic as they were back then. In 1999 a small group of Russian dancers performing in the US with a national touring company of Cossacks from Rostov at the Don, were invited to stay in the USA, and so the current Don Cossacks dance ensemble was formed and continued on their international touring to rave reviews from the press and audience alike.  The troupe currently has 18 members, men and women. All of the performers have been classically trained in Russia in dance or in their instrument.  They have then applied their training to preserve a folk culture .

"The ability of these classically trained dancers is well suited to the free spirited dances of the Cossack culture," says Sergey.
