  • Description

    Two ancient cultures met recently when a troupe of Korean girl dancers performed their centuries-old dances with the sands of Egypt as their stage, the Pyramids as their back-cloth, and the Sphinx as their audience.

    The Korean Folk Arts Troupe -- or the Little Angels, as audiences around the world have nick-named the nimble, wide-eyed youngsters -- were established in 1962 to promote the traditional Korean arts. Some of their repertoire is nearly two thousand years old -- traditional dances believed to have evolved in religious ceremonies connected with seed-sowing and harvesting. Other dances were developed to raise the morale of troops before battle, and later ones were "banquet dances", performed at the courts of the nobility.
