11th Youth Song and Dance Celebration "Maa ja ilm"

Has begun! For the first time the dance festival takes place at Lauluväljak along with the singing festival. Reactions are different, Laulväljak fits more spectators, but a stadium offers a better look at the images created by dancers which is kind of a trademark for the festival. Ladies on the tram said: "This is bullshit, Kalevi staadion is the best place for the dance festival and it was a stupid idea to change the location."
Like this teddy bear formed by the youngest dancers.
Running off the stage.
Collecting dancers from all over Estonia, altogether 7554 dancers and 386 teachers who along with an even larger amount of singers will eat 106 400 bowls of soup during the festivities.
