Moscow Weekend Fun: Best Buddies' Dance-a-Thon

The Best Buddies Dance-a-thon is not only the biggest dance marathon in Moscow — it's the only one.

Are your spirits a bit low? Desperate for spring? Need a pick-me-up?

You're in luck. On Sunday Stadium Live is hosting the 5th annual Best Buddies Dance-a-thon. All day, from noon to 9 p.m., the big hall will be filled with music, lights, DJs, and dancing. You'll be able to dance with some movie stars, take a master class by a great choreographer, do some crafts, or try your luck in a contest. The hall will be filled with all kinds of folks: big folks and little folks, kids and adults, people with disabilities and people without them, famous Russian pop singers, world-renowned dancers, choreographers and dance troupes... and someone's Uncle Max who loves to get down. There will even be a dancing dog.

And if you get hot or thirsty or hungry, there will be snacks and drinks available.

All the proceeds from the event will go to support programs by Best Buddies, Russia — a charitable organization that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and works to fully integrate them into society, through one-on-one friendships, leadership programs, and other activities.

Come alone or bring a friend to enjoy Moscow's best — and only — dance marathon!

Stadium Live. 80 Leningradsky Prospekt, Bldg. 17. Metro Sokol. Sun. April 24 noon to 9 p.m.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
