The contemporary art museum is offering modern dance lessons for a month from June 9 as part of a new project aimed at exploring the parallels between the artistic processes of the 20th century.

From June 9 to July 7 visitors will be able to partake in the Dances at the Museum project at Moscow's Tretyakov State Gallery on Krymsky Val, which contains an important collection of Russian avant-garde and contemporary art.

Every Thursday from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. (before the museum's official opening hour) all visitors holding an ordinary ticket can see the gallery's rooms with a guide and participate in modern dance lessons right in the museum.

The Tretyakov Gallery press office said that the theoretical lessons, which will be held in the 20th Century Art hall, will present dance as part of the artistic processes that took place in the last century and demonstrate the parallel developments in various dance forms.

The practical lessons will be conducted by teachers from the Tsekh School of Modern Dance and the Moscow Ballet Theater.
