Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava and the Estonian Disability Union Association invites you to dance for equal mobility!
On December 28th, for the third time, an entertaining and charitable 12-hour Dance Marathon will take place at Telliskivi Creative City, inviting you to dance for a common good.
The purpose of the dance marathon is to celebrate the culture of movement, while paying attention to those in need and those in a weaker position in society. With this event we want to raise awareness of movement and dance, emphasizing that people of any physical form and preparation are equal and involved on the dance floor.
There are several ways to participate:
