The Act of Charity: Books for Orphan Asylums

Last week our school took part in the act of charity organised by the Charity Fund "Ryazan childern's homes". The students of our school gathered about two hundred books for the kids living in orphan asylums. I think it's cool that you can help somebody.

Time to dance?

Hi! My name is Yana. I’d like to tell you about modern dances. In Russia the most popular dances are belly dance, Go-Go, R'n'B...I have been dancing since I was 5. My Dancing Club performs at our town and all Russian competitions. We have won a lot of prizes. I love dancing very much. Here some pictures from our concert and later I’ll post a video.

About one of the greatest museums in the world

Hi! My name is Nastya. I really want to go to St. Petersburg because in this northern Russian city there are many beautiful monuments. But now I want to tell you about one of them. This is the Hermitage. It’s one of the world-wide known museums. You can see a lot of fantastic pictures and sculptures from different places of the planet. I think that the most beautiful is the Hall of Leonardo da Vinci. The hall is decorated in the style of 17 century French Baroque. The Hermitage possesses two masterpieces of Leonardo. The Rembrandt collection is one of the most treasured possessions of the museum.

Hold on, Japan!

Hi! My name is Anya. I love anime and I am fond of Japanese culture in general. I would really like to visit Japan and learn their language. Japan is a very beautiful country with its centuries of history, interesting traditions and cool music. (By the way, what music do you listen?)Thousands of tourists come to see a great flowering of Japanese Sakura. Everybody knows about a terrible disaster in Japan. I worry about Japanese people and try to be in the know. It will be very interesting to hear your opinion about this catastrophe.

What do you think about these works?

Hi, I'm Olga and I’d like to tell you about my favorite painter-Utako Kagaya. He was born in 1968, and he’s one of the first painters, who used computers in his work. In 1996 he began to use computer «makintosh». His pictures include shining elements. His most famous works focus on three main topics: Celestial Exploring, Galactic Railroad and Starry Tales. Kagaya also had an exhibition of his works in Canada. In 2008, he did an exhibition in South Korea. You can watch some of his works on this cite:
