The Little Angels, the children's folk ballet of Korea, bring the excitement and beauty of Korea's music and dance to Montclair State University's Memorial Auditorium on Friday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m.
The Little Angels is a company of 40 young artists, aged 8 to 15, from Seoul, Korea. Through music and dance they present timeless moments from Korea's folklore and legends. Many of the songs and dances that are performed in the colorful program originated as long as 2000 years ago.
The Little Angels offer a delightful program that weaves a spell of Oriental magic that captivates audiences and makes the Korean cultural heritage easily understood by Western audiences. From the stately court dances to the exuberant and joyful dances and songs from rural Korean life, audiences get glimpses of Korean life through music, drumming and dance. Their performance includes the famous Fan Dance, Warrior's Dance and Hourglass Drum Dance.
