Shadow Dancing in Moscow – (

Take gymnastics, throw in a little ballet and top it off with some fancy lighting – this is what it takes to create a good shadow dancing show.

The ancient art of shadow dancing or shadow play is thought to have originated in China a few thousands years ago as an art of storytelling and entertainment. Originally, puppets were used to form silhouettes against a back lit translucent screen. Later on, the show evolved and live dancers started taking part in the performance.

The art of shadow dancing has been neglected for a long time and is just starting to gain due recognition in the world. Today, there are just 20 shadow dancing troupes touring the world and Russia, having a strong gymnastics and ballet tradition, is pioneering this field. Five concerts are to be given in Moscow, another two will be given in Saint Petersburg and then the troupe will move on to give performances in Europe and the Americas.

If you are currently in Moscow, dating a Russian girl, taking her to one of the mesmerizing performances will prove to be great entertainment. Don’t miss out on the chance to be a witness to the beginning of a new form of stage art.

A Jazz Festival in Russia – (

When one thinks about Russian music, such names as Rakhmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky come to mind. After all, the Russian are known for their great classical composers. Jazz is probably the last thing that comes to mind when one thinks about Russian music, but jazz is becoming very big in Russia.

An annual Jazz festival in Russian gathers artists from all over the world and many American jazz men come to play alongside Russian musicians.

“Russians have a very “classical approach” when it comes to music, – says an American jazz singer. – They always play it “just right”, which is not always perfect for jazz. They have embraced the music, but we lived it”.

A jazz performance is a great idea for a date with a single Russian lady, no woman can resist the music. Apart from annual jazz festivals, every large Russian or Ukrainian city has a number of jazz joints you can go to, just pick up a local newspaper and search the listings there.

An Eco Art Exposition Held in Moscow – (

Environmental art, sometimes also called “Eco art”, is a contemporary form of art that is created by artists who are concerned about the nature and the damage caused to the planet by human actions. The art works are usually made from natural materials, such as wood, sand or stone.

“When I get a new piece of wood for my work, I just set it in my backyards for some time, two-three days at least, – says a Russian artist. – During these days, I don’t do anything, I just observe the piece and then it simply comes to me, all I have to do from that point on is to accent the piece’s natural shape”.

Eco art has been a hit in Europe and America for quite a while now, however it is just becoming big in Russia and not many galleries have held such expos yet.

An exposition of Pablo Picasso’s works has been held in Moscow.

Pablo Picasso, a Spanish-born painter, ceramicist and stage designer, was one of the most influential artists of the 20eth century. He is well known in Russian, partially due to his marriage to a Russian girl Olga Khokhlova, a Russian ballerina. Khokhlova introduced Picasso to high society, formal dinner parties, and all the social niceties attendant on the life of the rich in 1920s Paris, which in turn has greatly affected his style of painting.

Food Markets in Russia and Ukraine – (

There are plenty of options available in Russia or Ukraine when it comes to buying food. Huge department stores provide variety and convenience, but many old-schoolers prefer to shop at regular markets. Some say that attending a real market is quite an experience in itself – you can bargain, communicate with sellers and other customers and see the common folk. Another advantage of shopping at a local market is the fact that you can get home grown vegetables, while department stores mostly offer mass-produced food that, although looks great, usually has inferior nutritional value when compared to home-grown products.

Due to cheap labor, 24/7 convenience stores are also quite common in any large city. Although called “convenience stores”, they provide a much greater variety of food than a western convenience store that usually concentrates on such products as sweets, cigarettes and alcohol.

Most girls in Russia are good cooks, since they are taught traditional family values, and your lady can take you on a tour to a food market, should you desire to visit one.
