MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The event “Folk Games and Fun” dedicated to the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity was held in the Novooskolsk educational colony. At this holiday, the pupils were “transported into the past” and learned how young people in Ancient Russia whiled away their free time. Round dances were one of the types of folk art.
The dance with the song united young people and helped build a family. The organizers of the event tried to acquaint the convicts with the game elements of the round dances, learned the lyrics of the songs. Round dances to the songs “Karavai”, “I walk around the gorenka”, “The merry-go-round turned around” brought in a storm of positive emotions.
In addition, the participants of the event guessed riddles and said proverbs about the family. The final moment was the flash mob – “Collect the picture”. The convicts collected chamomile from puzzles – a symbol of the holiday. The wreaths on the heads of the girls were also decorated with daisies.
The main task of the organizers of the event is to instill a feeling of love for Russian folk culture, arouse love for Russian folk songs, form ideas about the family, and help strengthen family ties between different generations.
