<< (Ashton Cassim/Dancer) "You feel like you can fly, like you can do anything." 
(Becky Farr/KX News)Rinat's dancers perform at every Hostfest, but Wednesday's performance is sure to be different.
(Kelsey Mindt/Dancer) We're rehearsing for our performance with Daniel O'donnell. He is a very well known Irish dancer and Irish singer."
(Farr) O'Donnell invited Rinat's advanced dancers to join him in a traditional Irish dance.
Rinat and his performers say they are grateful and ready for this opportunity.
(Mindt) "A thought of gratitude, and thankfulness that he chose our studio to help represent North Dakota."
(Rinat Mouzafarov/Owner, Institute of Dance & Ballet) Very blessed and very honored to be dancing with him, my students.
(Cassim "Honestly, it means a lot. I've never really been invited by a high performer to such a big event as the Hostfest and it's just a great honor to dance with him on stage."
(Mindt) "It's a great opportunity for our studio and to get our name more out there to help bring more students in to help raise our productions."
(Farr) The dancers will be performing several times in the next few days.
They will also present their famous ski fantasy, Norwegian dress and Scandinavian heritage dances.
(Mindt) "My favorite part about performing there is being with your friends and dancing with them, and getting to learn about the different cultures that are a part of the Hostfest."
(Farr) The collaboration with O'donnell will take place Wednesday, the 28th at 7:30 in Great Hall.
