The Russian Children's Welfare Society

The Russian Children's Welfare Society has been helping disadvantaged Russian children in Europe, South America and Russia since our establishment in New York City nearly 80 years ago. In the years that have followed, the original $3.50 gathered in the first meeting continued to grow. To date, the RCWS has raised over $15,000,000 and continues to annually exceed fundaraising expectations. As the flow of Russian immigrants slowed, the RCWS refocused its mission to include enhancing the lives of vulnerable children in Russia. Following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia's infrastructure has been in transition, placing children at risk. As a result, hundreds of thousands of children need our help. Too many children in too many parts of Russia are without adequate medical attention, education, vocational training and basic care.

Petroushka on The Hudson

The Petroushka Ball, a traditional Russian ball held annually in New York City is the primary fundraising event for the The Russian Children's Welfare Society. Started in 1965 by a group of descendants of Russian families whose intent was to raise funds to help to Russian children. Since then, the Ball has become one of New York Society's most vibrant and anticipated annual events, attracting upwards of 800 dinner and dancing guests. The RCWS's 41st Annual Petroushka Ball was held on February 10, 2006 at the Waldorf-Astoria Grand Ballroom.

RUSSIAN DANCE

First official record of Russian dancing is related to year 907 when Great Russian Prince Oleg (Vechshiy Oleg) celebrated his victory over Greeks in Kiev. During the Gala Dinner 16 male dancers dressed as bears and four bears dressed as Russian dancers performed for the guests. After the dinner was over Great Prince commanded to release the bears into the wild and to execute all the dancers.

As it became clear later on, Vechshiy Oleg, who was purblind, has mistaken the dancers for the ambassadors from the Northern Tribes (Severyane) who owned him a few hundred skins of marten - Russian tiger-cat... read full article

Danila Cooper - dance of the Russian Nobility

"Daniel Cooper" (also sometimes spelled as "Danila Kuper" or "Daniel Kupor") is the dance of the Russian Nobility during Napoleonic wars (in Russian version, "Danilo Kupor") was an actual dance - to be more precise, contradance, an old English dance characterized by quick and easy movements. F.F. Wiegel in his "Memoirs" (part 1, M., 1864, p. 62, first published in "Russky Vestnik", 1856) wrote that "One of these contradances was named a Danilo Kupor, probably after its composer, a certain Englishman Cooper".

Daniel Cooper dance was briefly mentioned in world-known novel by Leo Tolstoy "War and Piece": The dance grew livelier and livelier. The other couples could not attract a moment's attention to their own evolutions and did not even try to do so. All were watching the count and Marya Dmitrievna. Natasha kept pulling everyone by sleeve or dress, urging them to "look at Papa!" though as it was they never took their eyes off the couple. In the intervals of the dance the count, breathing deeply, waved and shouted to the musicians to play faster. Faster, faster, and faster; lightly, more lightly, and yet more lightly whirled the count, flying round Marya Dmitrievna, now on his toes, now on his heels; until, turning his partner round to her seat, he executed the final pas, raising his soft foot backwards, bowing his perspiring head, smiling and making a wide sweep with his arm, amid a thunder of applause and laughter led by Natasha. Both partners stood still, breathing heavily and wiping their faces with their cambric handkerchiefs.
"That's how we used to dance in our time, ma chere," said the count.
"That was a Daniel Cooper!" exclaimed Marya Dmitrievna, tucking up her sleeves and puffing heavily.


In 2008 Russian dance ensemble Barynya from New York re-introduced "Danila Kooper" dance during the Russian Nobility Ball 2008 in New York City (Hotel Pierre, Grand Ball Room), May 9th, 2008... read more, view video
