Since 1969, the mission of the New Archangel Dancers has been to promote and encourage interest in Alaska's Russian history and culture through folk dance and song. These were prominent in Sitka during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Dancers support the performing arts in the community of Sitka, and promote and encourage tourism.
The New Archangel Dancers are accepting show requests for special occasions and taking those case by case. We are excited to announce, we are working on some summer and year round performances and will have those posted when available.
A performance is scheduled annually around Alaska Day to support this celebration and to showcase our repertoire for the local Sitka community. The Dancers have performed in Japan, Canada, Mexico and Russia, and are considered by many to be Ambassadors for Sitka and Alaska.
