Kuopio Dance Festival Scores a Hit with the Audiences
The 45th year was a celebration in many ways. The dance courses were attended by 700 amateurs and professionals. This year, the public had a particularly big role in creating the festival atmosphere. The free events in the Market Square and the Hall of Light in the Music Centre had plenty of participants, and the open-air dances at the Harbour, organised in response to public demand, were very popular.
“All the performers inspired the audiences. Nobody left feeling empty,” adds Uotinen.
