    On weekends (Friday through Sunday) you can go to a dance that takes place at the village club.
    However, the young people tend to organize many more dancing parties, almost every day (if it's summer).
    The nightclub is located in the bulding of the local shopping mall and has live music, a dancing ground and several tables where you can sit and consume draft beer or what not.
    You can also play billiards here. I don't know how a game of billiards combines with dances. Live and learn!
    The villagers enjoy Russian variety music here.
    Don't forget to take a flash light with you: not all the streets are straight and flat...
