Vainakh - The National Dance Ensemble of the Chechen Republic

Vainakh, the National Dance Ensemble from the Chechen Republic will be performing in Dubai for one night only, on Monday, 2nd April.

Brought to us by the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and the Ministry of Culture of the Chechen Republic, they will also be joined by Dakmokh, The Chechen State Children's Song and Dance Ensemble (and I believe the President of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Akhmadovich will also be present). 

I remember watching Chechen dancing on TV as a child and being completely mesmerised by their moves. Now's my chance to watch it live. 

If you are not familiar with folkloric dancing from the Chechen Republic, here's an intro.
