Firebird Dance Theatre Presents An Annual Benefit Performance
in Memory of Rosa Lysaya

Part children’s dance recital, part professional-level concert, Firebird showcases inventive, complex and well-executed choreography based on traditional Ukrainian, Russian, Armenian, Moldavian, Argentinean, French, Latin and Gypsy steps.
Firebird Dance 
Firebird started at the Palo Alto JCC in 1991 by world-renowned teacher and choreographer Rosa Lysaya. Known then as the Lysaya Dance School, it enrolled six students and focused on traditional folk dances from Russia and around the world. 

The current director, Lotta Lysaya-Barton (daughter of Rosa), brings an annual benefit concert to the Schultz Cultural Hall to pay homage to where the theater started. Firebird's signature style is known as modern or contemporary folk.

“It’s important to keep traditions, because it’s a good way for people to communicate their different cultures," says Lysaya-Barton. "But you need to be up-to-date to attract new generations.”
