UrFU's hip hop dance team to compete in world championships

Ural Federal University's Fast and Furious dance group will be competing in the World Championships of hip-hop aerobics this month.

The team recently took home fifth place in the national championships in Moscow.

Coach Catherine Rogozhin said that the team has trained heavily, often late into the night and early morning. Rogozhin attributes the team's success to its strong feelings of unity. This is the first time the team has traveled to compete at such a large event.

The team has a second-string squad, which also took part in the Russian championship--its first time competing on a national scale. The team, led by Irina Vakhonin, came in 11th place.
