Maldives ballet
Mariinsky Ballet Company special “floating” performance at NIYAMA

And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon.” ― Edward Lear, The Owl and the Pussycat

International Dance Day today. The shores of the Maldives have been an international dance floor for dancers of all genres – ballet, ballroom, aerial, ribbon, belly dancing, acrobatic, ribbon dancing, pole dancing. Sometimes they come for work, sometimes for fun, sometimes for both. The Maldives Complete troupe of twenty includes a bit of everything.
