The Estonia 100 initiative 'Dancing Estonia' will end with a joint dance on the last day of the anniversary year. All participants of the initiative can become lead dancers for the national joint dance and teach the routine to other participants in public rehearsals on 31 December at 2 p.m.
According to Raido Bergstein, project manager of the 'Dancing Estonia' initiative, ending the anniversary year with a dance celebration has already enthused countless people.
“Regional coordinators have confirmed that people are very interested, and several groups are already learning the 'Dancing Estonia' joint dance routine. If any dancing enthusiasts wish to teach the routine at public rehearsals on town squares on 31 December at 2 p.m., then now is the time to let us know,” Bergstein added.
Anyone who has participated in the 'Dancing Estonia' initiative during the anniversary year can become a lead dancer of the joint dance, whether as individuals, families, schools, or organisations.
Lead dancers will participate in a public rehearsal in any of the 16 towns on 31 December to help other participants learn the routine, and afterwards, everybody will dance the joint dance. Lead dancers are supervised by regional county coordinators. If you wish to be a dancing instructor for the joint routine on 31 December, contact us by 20 December at the latest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
