Вдоль по улице метелица метёт

Вдоль по улице метелица метёт.
За метелицей молодушка идёт. 

Ты, постой! Постой, красавица моя,
Дозволь наглядеться, радость, на тебя.

На твою ли на приятну красоту,
На твоё ли, да на белое лицо.

Ты, постой! Постой, красавица моя,
Дозволь наглядеться, радость, на тебя. 

Красота твоя с ума меня свела,
Иссушила добра молодца меня.

Ты, постой! Постой, красавица моя,
Дозволь наглядеться, радость, на тебя. 

"There is a snowstorm along the street"

Snowstorm is blowing along the street 
My sweetheart is walking there. 

Please stop, do not walk, dear!
Let me look at you, my joy! 

Whether it's on your pleasant beauty, 
Or upon your pale face. 

Please stop, do not walk, dear!
Let me look at you, my joy!

Your beauty has driven me crazy, 
Doomed a fine young lad, that's me. 

Please stop, do not walk, dear!
Let me look at you, my joy!

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 at the best restaurant in Kiev. 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.
