“Sitka's New Archangel Dancers”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This show is a delight! The performers are local women who are presenting traditional Russian folk dances as part of Alaska's heritage. They wear traditional costumes and the women even play the men's roles and costumes. The show is full of energy and the ability of these performers to showcase some of the more rigorous Russian dance moves is amazing. For a rollicking good time, see this show. It is presented at Harrigan Centennial Hall right at the port!

“traditional russian dances”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Archangel Dancers perform when the large liners are in port – and usually have a performance at 9:30am and again 12:30pm. This is an all-female organization of volunteers who are highly skilled and committed to first rate performances. They give a variety of traditional Russian dances and usually do so in groups of two or four. Their performances are given in the Harrington Center which is a short walk from the fleet landing or from any hotel in town. There is a small entrance fee. When our performance was over, the crowd stood and cheered. The dancers are happy to come out after the show and pose for pictures and answer questions.
