Repertoire / 3. THE DON QUADRILLE – typical Cossack and Russian dance

that is performed by a few pairs and each of them has its own image. During the dance girls and boys are competing with each other, trying to dance better than the other ones. Girls are “ knapping” (beating rhythm with heels), young men also try to demonstrate their skills. Then the best dancers are in the circle, showing their mastery.
