Cossack Dance 2. Moldova Dance3. Varenka Dance 4. Kalinka5. Hopak The Cossack dance and the Modovian one are the two dances that I wanted the most to be performed. Would it be possible to have the Moldavian dance with just one male and one female? And the Cossack dance, can they coordinate it so that it's only two male dancers doing it? My fiance really likes the Cossack dance and since I have hired you for him as a surprise, I would really like to incorporate at least that dance (or something similar to that dance) into the wedding performance.
