    As a self-confessed Russophile, I can't help but find this incredibly fascinating. To me this is by far the most intriguing of Russian folk dances. It's just so cool how they glide across the floor like that, especially when they speed up and manage to do it in unison!

    From what I've read, the technique they use isn't from ballet (at least not straight on en pointe). However, many Russian folk dance academies refuse to reveal what the actual technique is.

    Thats the only thing I can think of where they can move (roughly the same amount of steps) in unison to no show movement in the hips icon_confused.gif

    Haha, it's the only thing I can think of too. But I don't know diddly squat about dance. I couldn't tell you. Just that some of the research I've done on various things on Russian culture have suggested that folk dancing is a thing of its own without regard to ballet and that dance schools tend to be secretive of certain dances.

    I've watched this video over 10 times today. It still kind of boggles my mind. I wouldn't be surprised if I have dreams of matryoshki gliding across a floor.

    ChangeofName saidrussians are hot.


    The ladies are, yes. Women of Eastern Europe are absolutely stunning. I have to admit while I was in Russia, some girls I saw sort of made me question myself!

    Unfortunately the said cannot be said for most of their men, lol. It's no wonder a lot of Russian girls end up marrying a foreigner. Although some of the younger, metro-looking guys aren't too shabby icon_wink.gif
