The Russian art troupe TODES is slated to perform at the Gengsu Theater in Nantong, Jiangsu province, on May 11.

The performance will include ballet, jazz dance, disco, international style ballroom dancing, breakdancing, and street dance, as well as a special dance paying tribute to Michael Jackson and a number exclusively authorized by Lady Gaga.

Founded in 1986, TODES is among the most prestigious pop dance troupes in the world. All TODES' dancers have received professional and systematic training, especially in ballet and classical dancing, which helps them master outstanding performance skills.

Over the years, the dance troupe has danced at concerts by Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, and other superstars.

In 2012, TODES became the first foreign performance team to be invited to perform on the CCTV Spring Festival Gala. In the ensuing years, the dance troupe was also invited to dance on other Spring Festival shows in China.
