Before there was ballet, there was folkloric dance--a Russian tradition which translated the local culture into an upbeat, often loud, and always athletic form of dance. Narrated by Tony Randall, this video features several song and dance performances, both indoors and out, and offers a glimpse into the elaborate costumes required for this type of art, as well as the subtle differences between the folkloric dances of Uzbekistan, Moldova, Romania, and the Ukraine.
