DENIS VITCHENKO, SOLOIST, ‘SALTANAT’ STATE DANCE ENSEMBLE:
- The ensemble was founded in 1955 by Chernysheva. Initially, it was an ensemble of songs and dances of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic, and then it was renamed to ‘Saltanat’ state dance ensemble. We perform at EXPO 2017 this year, and next year we are planning to tour to the U.S., China, and South Korea.
Saltanat ensemble took part in many international and state events. Their performance is always impressive and the variety of concert programs suits the taste of the most sophisticated audience. The ensemble will perform at the closing ceremony of the EXPO 2017.
