Elena Rozhkova, the founder of ReD Foxes:
'The ReD Foxes style means dances that speak. At the Olympic Games in Athens I realized that a ‘speaking dance’ is the key element of international communication. It was just at the Olympics that I felt how people of different nationalities and faiths can unite. It is at such sporting events that one can see real Love towards life and a striving to confirm this love by a victory, a proof that even a most challenging goal can be achieved. As we create our speaking dances, the ultimate task for all the Red Foxes is to reach the hearts of our spectators, to express the intrigue of each game and inspire as bright a feeling as possible.
And let me tell you a secret—that’s what one calls Happiness. It is an indescribable feeling of success when 20.000 spectators from all around the world, who speak different languages, come to understand us!!! They understand the ReD Foxes’ speaking dances.
And now, as ReD FoXeS inspire millions of spectators around the globe, the upcoming objective is to introduce our dance movement to the world through dance studios.»
