Amazing Folk Dancers Float across the Stage

(Video Link)

In 1948, the Russian dance troupe Berezka formed, taking its name from the Russian word for birch tree. Audiences were mesmerized by its special step, hidden beneath the dancers' long, flowing dresses. They appear to actually float over the floor! Skip to about 1:30 in the video to see this effect.

good catch, Geoduck, but it actually was Georgian dance not Russian
"He [Terry Nation] was also inspired by a performance by the Georgian National Ballet, in which dancers in long skirts appeared to glide across the stage"


credit where credit is due :)
