Yes, our project begins with a tour of the city. We start in Moscow and then to Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Rostov-on-don, Krasnodar and Sochi.

A large-scale. And how it all started?

Once I was in Paris alone, sad. And I suddenly thought, “what if we go outside and start dancing?” The conditions were just appropriate – I’m alone in an unfamiliar place where nobody knows me … put my headphones on, turned on the music and decided. And immediately realized how difficult it was.

It is hard to believe. You have the emancipation of the 80-th level.

And yet it was overcoming myself. In the first 20 minutes I tried to shake myself, not squeezing. And then he raised his head, began to look people in the eye, and let me go. In the end, I danced for more than an hour and a euphoria of it all caught! The sadness was gone, he wanted to do something, and I thought it would be cool to come up with something like this in Moscow. To gather together, put on the headphones and dance.


Back in Russia, I went to the camp “Change” to meet with children. I said I want to walk with a psychologist or dance with people on the street and thus help them to overcome fears, complexes, something like that. With me was friend Julia Repeta, it the idea seemed cool, we sat on the seashore and began to think how to start this project in Moscow. And I came up with.

But I was still shaking from fear. Remember I said to everyone: “Guys, if you are worried, you know – I worry even stronger.”

With headphones is music and breaks my voice, I give participants the task – to say Hello to passers-by, to give “five” the person next and so on. To be able to dance to it, we are not at all necessary, we are not standing still.

Almost group therapy …

So. The thrill of it all, like you’re a pretty awesome concert: it seems that the crowd must be uncomfortable, but this crowd is on your wave around like-minded people, and you’re cool.
