A student from VSU, Maria Konovalova, applied for Competition of Projects by Young Scholars organised by “Russian Youth” and won a grant to implement her project, i.e. to create a dancing hall for the team TopRate.
TopRate is a team which is constantly developing and needs regular practice. They have won many university, regional, and national competitions and festivals, including “Russian Students’ Spring”, “Dance Wave”, and “Move forward dance contest”. Project818 rated them among top 10 dance teams. TopRate is over 5 years old. Since then, they have trained in a number of dancing halls. The number of the members of the team is growing every year: it is being joined by students from various VSU faculties who gather to improve their dancing skills. That is why TopRate needs a hall of its own.
Now, thanks to the support of the “Russian Youth” and VSU the students will be able to train in their own dancing hall. At the moment, the repair works are almost finished and the rehearsals will start at the end of the month. What is more, now TopRate will not only get a chance to prepare for competitions but also to invite teachers from other cities.
