Re: korobushka question
- Somebody has already made the point that not only is Korobushka out
of period but that it isn't actually a dance either, it has merely
had a dance associated with it due to a stage performance. So, the
music isn't period, the dance isn't period... and I've seen this
dance done to..... brace yourselves.... Mortal Kombat! Yes, AT an
SCA event. There's a lady who is a dear friend who occassionally
stages a "Fool's Ball" where she teaches the dance to the "correct"
music and then everyone dances it to some totally off the wall modern
song she's selected. Part of me is always totally appalled by this.
Yet I must confess that "the Korobushka" DOES look pretty darn cool
when done to Mortal Kombat! LOL
