By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — If you want to see Kings of Dance at College of Southern Idaho in March you'll have to change some plans.

KMVT got hold of an email describing the situation which caused the cancellation of the Russian dance company’s US tour. The email describes how 22 of the 44 dancers in the show were denied visas to come to the United States, citing the situation between Russia and the United States and new Homeland Security measures.

The show at CSI was scheduled for March 17. As of Friday, no replacement performance has been listed.

According to other performing arts centers that had also booked the performance, the entire US tour has been cancelled.
