Dance: A Delicate Art
Dance is a form of art that is much treasured in the city of Limassol. Having a long and rich tradition in this sector as the Municipality of Limassol, we believe it is our obligation and duty to endorse talented young artists and encourage the sensitivity of this art form on which their careers are built on. It is now the appropriate moment, to promote our accomplished dancers, and particularly those who come from Limassol, through this production, in which they will collaborate with big names from dance companies of international prestige.
The Grand Ballets is organised under the Aegis of the President of the Republic of Cyprus, H.E. Mr. Nicos Anastasiades
