This was part of a ship excursion to see the local highlights. Timing was critical as the show is put on by local women who take a break during the day to perform for the passengers. The show starts at noon, on the dot. The tour guide was great at making sure that we arrived in time to get seated.... More

A group of women, doing amazing dances, in both male and female roles (no men allowed!). This is the best exercise routine ever! Their costumes are authentic and made by the troupe members. They have such joy in their performing, it flows off the stage and into the audience.

In Sitka the troupe called New Archangel Dancers was comprised of six women--three danced the role of women and the other three dressed and danced the role of men. They performed in authentic costumes several original dances from the provinces of Russia. They accomplished phenominally well the athletic movements involved in Russian folk dancing. It was an outstanding display of... More

Walked to the venue on our own, less than 20 minutes from the tender pier. We admired the skills and personalities of the dancers. Well worth the $10 admission (much cheaper than doing the visit with a ship-sponsored tour) for the 40 minute show.

These ladies, yes ladies - were excellent - especially the women who learned to dance as men in the Russian folk dances. I loved these dances and the information given on each dance

The history behind the dancers was interesting and the women tried really hard to entertain the group. It was underwhelming, but a good time killer.

We saw the New Archangel Dancers as part of a tour. This group of six dancers, all female, with another woman who introduced each dance performed for around 30-40 minutes. The music was recorded but was appropriate. The costumes were colorful. Several of the women danced what would be the male dancers parts and they were very good. The troupe... More

This was a stop on a tour, probably to fill in time. These are very enthusiastic women, none Russian, doing folk dances to recorded music in a converted warehouse. It serves its purpose.

This was fun and a great tradition for them to keep up. It was good, but I was underwhelmed overall. We were actually there in 2011. But I wasn't given that option.

The New Archangel Dancers are an all volunteer group of women who perform Russian folk dances to preserve a part of Sitka's Russian History. The dedication, enthusiasm and athleticism of the ladies is remarkable. This show is a lot of fun and shouldn't be missed during a visit to Sitka.
