Around 3,500 men gathered in Rakvere last weekend to dance at the third ever Estonian Mendance Festival.

The festival is inspired by the Estonian Dance Celebration that dates back to 1934, which takes place every five years in Tallinn and is part of UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage. A men only event is the idea of renown Estonian choreographer and dance teacher Maie Orav and first took place in 2006.
