The National Dance Company of Korea, one of the resident companies of the National Theater of Korea, will hold a special traditional performance called “Midday Korean Dance.” The show will be staged twice a month at the National Theater of Korea in Jung-gu, Seoul during the months of October, November and December.

Midday Korean Dance was created with the international audience in mind. The show incorporates various traditional percussion instruments such as the sogo (small drum), buk (drum), and janggu (hourglass-shaped drum) into one rhythmic and brilliant dance performance that runs for about an hour. An English commentary about the music and dance will be provided for the benefit of international audience members.

Admission is 20,000 won for S seats and 10,000 won for A seats. Tickets can be purchased online or on-site.
