Victory Walz Rehearsals Started at SUSU

Victory Waltz dance flashmob dedicated to one of the main holidays in our country, Victory Day, has become a traditional event for South Ural State University. Usually students from two faculties: the Faculty of Military Education and the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities were the event participants. This year students from all institutes and schools will be dancing on the square in front of the main university building to show their gratitude to the veterans of the Great Patriotic War and to honour their memory.

Since April 16th active preparation to the Victory Waltz is underway, along with daily rehearsals. By now the number of the Victory Waltz participants has amounted to more than 300 people.

“More and more people are coming to the rehearsals year after year, and we never refuse anyone. This year our project has stepped up to a new level. Now the whole university will be dancing the waltz,” shares the event organizer, Editor in Chief of SUSU-TV Natalya Tuchkova.

The Victory Waltz producing choreographers mention very high involvement of the participants. Every person coming to dance the Victory Waltz understands why s/he is doing it.

“I’ve taken part in the Victory Waltz and will never forget the eyes of our veterans who were watching us dance. They were thanking us that we remember their heroic act, and that all these years and generations later we’re grateful to them. And I was dancing and crying, and kept mentally saying ‘Thank you’ to them,” shares student of the third year of studies Viktoriya Pochueva.

Last year the flashmob was supported by a performance of a famous Ariel band who sang Tishina (Stillness) song. This year the military band of Chelyabinsk Higher Military Red Banner Secondary School of Flight Navigators will be performing at the Victory Waltz. What other surprises the organizers have in store for the audience this year is being kept secret for now.
