The 48-year-old man was performing a traditional lezginka dance when he fell ill.
The performance, which was recorded by a member of the audience on a smartphone , shows him collapsing to the floor while performing in the town of Urus-Martan in south-western Russia’s Chechen Republic.
The man was performing energetically at a Mother’s Day concert while singer Liza Akhmatova performed a Chechen song.
