Ukrainian team participating in Azerbaijan International Festival is heading to Baku. “Support to Sportsmen-Invalids” organization under the aegis of Azerbaijan Paralympic Committee has invited Ukrainian dancers with handicaps to take part in a flash mob and in the International Festival held at 7pm on May 19 in Baku. The organizers have invited wheelchair dancers from more than 10 countries of CIS and Europe for a dancing flash mob.
Ukrainian Fashion Week and Ukrainian designers have made their contribution to support Ukrainian paralympic team.
Designer Anna Bublik has accorded costumes for ceremonial events. Viktor Anisimov and Olena Golets have developed fashion dress code for Ukrainian dancers. Ruta company has provided Ukrainian participants with the national costumes. In other words, we have all the reasons to mention that our dancers will be not only the most high-ranked, but the most fashionable as well.
Fashion is never asocial and Ukrainian fashionistas and fashion community gladly support the key mission of the event. This event itself is a unique chance to demonstrate to everyone the role and the meaning of sport dances on wheelchairs, to demonstrate the strength of the spirit and willpower of handicapped people, as well as to establish strong international contacts.
Ukraine will be presented by: Ilona Slugovina (three-times Wheelchair Dance World Champion) and Mykhaylo Annenkov (Wheelchair Dance Sport Ukrainian Champion, Candidate Master of Sports of international level), as well as Ivan Zamiga (three-times Champion of Ukraine and World Cup holder) and Olena Dankevych (Master of Sports of international level, World and Europe Champion, three-times Champion of Ukraine).
