On December 06, 2023, on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and St. Nicholas Day, Dance Theater presented the GRAND HOTEL Charity Theater and Dance Performance «KROK».

The audience was able to plunge into the atmosphere of a real theatrical performance and visit a hotel where dance and rhythm reign supreme. Employees and residents of the hotel, every corner of this place told about themselves in the language of movement. The performance was filled with interesting stories of the characters, vivid dance performances, impressive costumes and special effects. And the number of set and costume changes was hard to count.

On the KROK stage, there was a thunderstorm, rain of money, laughter, tears, a wedding, passion, and a fight (not a real one, of course), so the audience had a great opportunity to experience the full range of emotions.
