Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava and the Estonian Society of People with Moving Disabilities invite you all to dance for equal movement rights at the end of the year!

The entertaining and fundraising 12-hour dance marathon invites to dance for a good cause. The aim of dance marathon is to acknowledge and celebrate movement culture while turning focus towards those who need help and those who hold a weaker position in our society. We wish to increase the awareness of movement and dance, emphasizing the fact that all people with different kinds of physical training, abilities and form are equal and included on dance floor.

There are several ways to participate:

* Register to participate as a dancer (till the places are filled), participation fee 7 eur: https://goo.gl/forms/Uy6M7HSiGFvszVxD2
* Come to cheer, watch and to dance as you wish when buying the 5-euros supporter ticket at the door (in cash only!). With this ticket you can enter and leave freely all the day. The profit goes straight to supporting the visitations of youngsters with moving disabilities at a special training and rehabilitation centre.
* Support with a separate donation to the account of  Estonian Society of People with Moving Disabilities with the keyword ‘dance marathon’: EE712200221011350780 (Swedbank)

This year we are supporting the visits of specially equipped training centre of youngsters with moving disabilities. We are collaborating with the Estonian Folk Dance Society, Estonian Break Dance society and different dance studios to bring together dancers with different style backgrounds and experiences together with practitioners interested in movement.

The dance-based endurance race is taking place from 12 a.m till 12 p.m, from midday till midnight, during which the referees look for the contestants and evaluate their dancing. Every hour, a different DJ is playing music and the evening is led by hosts whose task is to cheer and energise the contestants as well. The referees also decide the ones who will get the prizes given out by our supporters and different companies. On the last hour, the geenral winner is chosen through a dance battle, hosted by Estonian Break Dance Society. The general winner gets a prize of 500 euros.

The lighting design is created by Karolin Tamm.
