The National Ballet of Canada is dazzling audiences this week on its first ever tour of Russia. An annual festival that started four years ago is trying to expose Russian audiences to more contemporary dance, in a country most famous for its classical ballet performances. And so the Canadian company was the perfect fit. Artistic director and former Canadian National Ballet dancer Karen Kain says art can transcend politics. The current tour visits Moscow and St. Petersburg until Friday.
