My experience with Arizona Russian Center was excellent! They helped me to move for free, and collected and brought the furniture for me and my child for free. I never saw such help from Russian organization before. Since then I went to their events. New Year party and Children's Protection Day party were very nice organized, happy for everyone and very, very friendly. Thanks everyone, who volunteers for ARC!

As a non-Russian, I am very grateful to this center. They are warm and hospitable, and very helpful to those who want to learn about the Russian culture. They are a great resource to the Russians and Eastern Europeans in the valley. I have been attending their events since last Aug./Sept. and I always had a good time there. Every time I learned something new about Russia and her people. They have Russian classes and many other events that are fun and educational. They are helping me with my Russian. Their dinners/parties are great, and the events are very well organized. I know from my personal experience that they do a lot to help others in different ways. Thank you Arizona Russian Center.

I participated in several events at the Arizona Russian Center and had an amazing experience! The energy is awesome; the people there are very friendly, and the environment there is very diverse which is plus! I learned a lot about the Russian culture and tradition(s). Not only was it a great educational experience, but the food was astounding! I look forward to future events and recommend this to anyone interested in Russian culture!

If there is any organization out there who knows how to throw a great event, it is this one! I only recently discovered the Arizona Russian Center and decided to attend a few of their events and was shocked at how well they were put together and organized. Not only that, but they made it seem like the Russian culture had taken a vacation from Russia, and came here to Arizona in the form of the Arizona Russian Center! I recommend everyone to visit this organization.

I went along with a friend to one of the events of the Arizona Russian Center and thought it was amazing! They had plenty of food and there was popular Russian music and everyone was having a great time. When the people began to walk onto the open dance floor to dance, they attempted to get everyone else to join them. My experience was quite fun.

I would consider myself a general member of the public though I volunteered once for our Russian New Year party. It was a lot of fun and a great opportunity for me to get together with Russian people that share the same culture with me. The organizers did a great job and they sincerely want to preserve our culture as well as help the Russians in need here in America.

я была приглашена на встречи организованые Русским Центром Аризоны.Мне эти встречи запомнились очень дружелюбной атмосферой, професиональной постановкой праздничных выступлений особенно детского коллектива. Также очень интересными были выступления приглашенных актеров(номер с голубями,арабский танец).

My wife is from Russia, and I speak intermediate Russian and like Russian culture. We were new to Arizona and the Russian Center introduced us to new friends. My wife contributes articles to the newspaper.The Russian Center is an excellent resource for both immigrants and people interested in Russia. Apart from social advantages, the Center also provides advice on settling down in America, including immigration and work paperwork

A lot of people were talking to me about the Arizona Russian Center, so I decided I needed to check them out. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly, and I learned a lot about Russian culture I had never known. I felt very welcome. I will be definitely attending their next event.
