Tomsk State Pedagogical University


Students from eight faculties and institutes of Tomsk State Pedagogical University took part in a dance contest:

  • Faculty of History and Philology;
  • Institute of Foreign Languages and International Cooperation;
  • Faculty of Psychology and Special Education;
  • Faculty of Culture and Arts;
  • Faculty of Preschool and Primary Education;
  • Faculty of Biology and Chemistry;
  • Technological and economic faculty;
  • Faculty of Physics and Mathematics.

The competition "Dance for the Faculty" was held in a mixed format: more than 300 spectators watched the performances from the hall, while the rest could connect to the online broadcast organized by the TV TSPU.

The contestants had to stage a dance number of three to five minutes on a free theme.

"It's nice to see how the event is transformed from an ordinary amateur activity into something more: the participants approach it as seriously as possible, the level of staging and involvement in the creative process increases", — says Roman Romanov, director of the TSPU Student Club.

While preparing for the competition, students tried to work on ideas, investing in them the maximum creativity, diversifying dance styles, improving costumes and overall design.

"Our production involved a new cast of dancers, existing only a month, — says Daria Kudinova, a student of the Faculty of Culture and Arts. — We haven't seen such an enthusiastic audience yet! The feedback from the jury was useful: we were recommended to make some changes in the costumes and include their transformation in the number. In general, we received good feedback on technique, idea, and expression of emotion."

According to the results the teams of the Faculty of Culture and Arts, Faculty of Pre-School and Primary Education, Faculty of Psychology and Special Education, Institute of Foreign Languages and International Cooperation were allowed to the final stage of the competition. Also, thanks to a vote of the audience, which was organized in the group of the Student Club in VK, dance competition will continue students of History and Philology Department.

The second (final) round of the competition will be held on May 18 on the stage of the TSPU Technopark. Five teams will present two numbers each: one will be staged on a free theme, and the other on a secret theme, which you will be able to find out by joining the broadcast.
