A $30 million splurge on Putin’s daughter’s favorite sport

Russia is building a $30 million complex for acrobatic rock’n’roll, a niche sport in which President Vladimir Putin’s daughter is a leading dancer and has a senior role for development, a Reuters review of public documents has shown.

The Zhavoronki Acrobatic Rock’n’Roll Center will be built on the western outskirts of Moscow at a cost of 1.9 billion roubles, according to state tender documents available online, and will be funded by the municipal government.

It will be the only specialized facility in the world for the sport, according to governing body the World Rock’n’Roll Confederation (WRRC). The money being invested dwarfs that spent on some other, bigger, sports in Russia such as archery and biathlon.

The complex is being built for the Moscow City Khamovniki state sports and dance school, where Katerina Tikhonova – identified by Reuters last year as Putin’s youngest daughter – was trained in acrobatic rock’n’roll and for which she competed several times until 2014. 

The 30-year-old is a top Russian acrobatic rock’n’roll dancer, a vice president at the WRRC, and also a senior official in the sport’s national federation, chairing its international committee and committee for Russian regional development. Her former dance coach heads the Khamovniki school.
