Russian National Dance Show Kostroma

Kostroma Russian National Dance Show

Russia has a rich history and vast culture. When visiting you can visit many attractions, memorials, and historical museums. However, it can be difficult to encapsulate the Russian experience. For the last fifteen years, the “National Ballet Kostroma” company has been in business. Working to portray Russian culture, traditions, and spirit, the company uses dance to tell Russia’s story.


The Russian National Ballet “Kostroma” is one of the youngest pro dance companies in the Russian Federation. The company performs in the genre of folk art and represent Russia in shows at home and abroad.

The show uses the art of dance to illustrate the history of Russia and its people. Using historical landmarks, traditions, and customs of multi-national Russia, the show accurately shapes the identity of Russian people throughout the ages. From the Baptism of Russia, Tsarist Russia, and the USSR. The audience can see how historical milestones have shaped the country today.
The show also represents the way of life of various parts of the country. We hear stories from Siberia, the Eurasian Steppe, the mountains of the Caucasus, and Central Russia.

The Kostroma show is a grand performance, with 50 dancers on stage. The show involves 600 handmade costumes, 15 reincarnations, 8 set changes, 10 tons of cargo, and 300 props. With such grandeur, it comes as no surprise that it took a few years to stage the program.

The famous image of Kostroma is “The Girl in Silver”, a woman dressed in blue and silver embroidery. The image represents the delicate art of Kostroma filigree.
