The Association of Creative Unions is a voluntary association of different groups at the USUE Recreation Center.
Open studio theater – O.S.T.
The name determines the characteristics of the theater. "Open" means that we are open to new people, ideas, and experiments. "Studio" means that our theater regularly conducts classes in acting and scenic speech. "Theater" means that we show plays, performances, sketches on the stage of the Recreation Center and other venues of the city, visit theatrical festivals and go on tours. For 13 years of existence, O.S.T. is a multiple winner of Russian and international festivals. In the repertoire of the theater, there are such well-known performances as "Rezo", "Marina Tsvetaeva. Things that passed", "Faryatyev's Fantasy , "We", "Match Factory", "Alisa", "Ala-ad-Din", and others. An actor in our theater is more than just an actor: he or she is an artist, a property master, an assembler, a director, a composer, a playwright, and even a little philosopher. Generally speaking, everyone is doing whatever he can! Come to us, if you wish to unlock creativity and imagination!
In Russia, cheerleading exists since 1996 and now is an official sport.
At USUE a cheerleading team appeared 6 years ago. The team "ReActive" participated in many cheerleading competitions in the categories "cheer-mix", "group stunts mix", "partner stunts" and has a number of awards.
Since 2012, the team is coached by Ksenia Levina (a participant of the support group "Bagira" in Moscow, a three-time champion of Russia in cheerleading).
In September 2013, a new team of the cheer-dance-show was gathered, which today consists of girls and is called "Reactive Girls". The team already participates in various competitions and takes an active part in the events of the city and the region. They are invited to grace with enchanting and incendiary numbers sporting events in Yekaterinburg, Pervouralsk, Chelyabinsk, Tyumen and then some! We work with many well-known companies: Ural Airlines, Coca-Cola, hockey club Avtomobilist.
In 2014, the team won the title "Champions of the Urals and Siberia" in the category of cheer-dance-show at the competitions in sports cheerleading, which was a great incentive to win in the future!
Vocal ensemble "CAPRICE"
Artistic director - Ksenia Yakhnova, concertmaster - Maria Aranbitskaya.
The group was created in January 2016 at the USUE Recreation Center.
The name of the group originates from the French word "caprice". Initially, "caprice" is an instrumental play of a fanciful character with a bright change of images and moods (the most famous caprices for violin belong to N. Paganini). This name of the vocal ensemble indicates the breadth of the themes and scenic images, as well as the diversity of the performing repertoire. In the repertoire of the ensemble, there are musical compositions of various musical epochs and styles - from classics to contemporary composers, music of the peoples of the world in various languages, interesting arrangements of popular Russian songs.
The ensemble consists of 8-12 participants - USUE students and graduates.
The ensemble members have the opportunity:
* to develop their creativity;
* to master vocal skills;
* to become acquainted with interesting music of different styles and genres;
* to participate in various artistic events of the university;
* to take part in concerts, festivals and competitions outside the University.
At present, the group seeks new members and invites USUE students of any course and faculty for co-creation!
