Crete, Nebraska, NE, Russian dancers, musicians, singers, balalaika, garmoshka, piano, Doane College

Russian song, dance and music trio performed in Crete, Nebraska on November 18, 2014 at the Doane College, 1014 Boswell Avenue, Crete, NE 68333. Artistic director/founder Mikhail Smirnov played the garmoshka, a Russian-style diatonic button accordion and guitar. Elina Karokhina played the balalaika, a three-stringed, triangular instrument, performed Russian, Gypsy, Siberian Nanai, and Jewish folk dances. Pianist Denis Plutalov played a few Rakhmaninov pieces. In between playing songs on their instruments, singing songs, and dancing traditional numbers to the music, Mikhail Smirnov shared a little bit of the Russian language with the students. He taught them phrases such as "Thank You" (SPASIBO), "Hello" (ZDRAVSTVUITE), "You're Welcome" (PAZHALUYSTA) and "Bye" (PAKA) as well as the alphabet and counting. He said each word in English and then slowly in Russian, allowing the children a moment to try the words themselves after each one. After the segment on words, the audience attempted to chatter in Russian for a couple minutes, smiling and laughing about how they sounded. In the middle of the performance, Mikhail paused to share a couple of Russian tongue twisters, explaining each one in English first, and then saying them in Russian at top speed. With each one, the twisters got more complicated and lengthy.
