The Beryozka is a Russian ensemble of dances that originated in 1948. There are a total of 100 members in the ensemble. The dances are based on traditional folk melodies, which are then accompanied by chorus singing. The Beryozka reflects heavily upon Russian culture. Their concerts have been performed in over 50 different countries from all around the world. I found the ensemble dance to be absolutely incredible, especially how well-choreographed the performance was. The traditional Russian dances seen here are known as “The Chain” and “The Birch Tree”. I hope you enjoy the beauty and art of the Beryozka as much as I did!
