Krasnoyarsk (Agencies): Over 1,500 talented young people from Russia will take part in a traditional IQ Ball together with the youth from the Asia-Pacific Region's countries to rejoice the anniversary of the first manned space flight 50 years ago.

This year's 'star ball' will have a slogan "Let's Go," which is a phrase first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin said as he was taking off from Earth.

The ball will take place on February 25 and it will be devoted to the maiden flight.

"As of now, over 1,500 energetic and initiative youth leaders from various regions of Russia and the Asia-Pacific countries have confirmed their participation," said Head of the Youth Initiatives Support Department of the regional Ministry of Sports Anna Zhuravleva.

The organisers have an idea that the young intellectuals, like cosmonauts do, will undergo a choice procedure and certain training session during the event.

Quite traditionally, a grand polonaise music will open the ball, which will be concluded by a waltz ballroom dance.

The atmosphere of space environment will be attained by an alley of interactive technologies, where the participants will be able to play computer games, draw, or watch the Earth from the space.

The organisers will also offer eight interactive dais to use. An evening concert featuring talented youth will be the climax of the event.

Russia's first IQ Ball was organised in 2003 at the initiative of the region's then governor, at present Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin.
