As, during most of 20 century in Russia, "Korobushka" was understood exclusively as a popular SONG. Sung by many famous singers. The popular Soviet dance ensembles of 1950-1980s used to create their own dance performances on popular folk tunes. This may be the reason Korobushka was ever meant as a dance.
