Each of these 45 minute splendidly presented videos easily permit the viewers to achieve competency and fluency in these period dances and are highly recommended additions to personal, professional, dance school, public Library, academic, and community theatre video reference collections. The Midwest Book Review

Very explicit and detailed instructions for each step and dance. Each step is shown front and back, fast and slow, without and with music. The steps are then built into entire dances. Finally the completed dances are shown in full with authentic period costuming and music. These tapes will be of primary interest to instructional dance collections and those concerned with dance and social history. Anyone with an interest in social history and culture will greatly enjoy these glimpses into the past. Library Journal

These instructional videos will be invaluable to choreographers who create dances for period films or for cotillions and charity balls. They preserve the art form and provide the story of the cultural phenomenon, thus making a perfect addition to dance, design, and anthropological libraries. Dance On Camera Journal

Social dance, history, technique, and researched choreography all come together in Dancetime Publications’ latest videos….this ideal addition to any traditional ballroom dancer’s video collection. Dancing U.S.A.

In fact, through well organized instruction, professional cinematography, sumptuous period costumes, and the cheerfully stentorian narration of Dance through Time founder Carol Téten, they provide an unexpectedly engaging look of dance forms of times past. Dance Teacher Now

House :: Bozhichi - a school of traditional Ukrainian dance

BOZHIC - a school of traditional Ukrainian dance - Part 1 (DVD + CD)

Lavina Music, 2009
[Ukrainian dances]

Video / Cold "School of traditional Ukrainian folk dance. Part 1" (2009)

Finally, the long-awaited video tutorial on Ukrainian folk dances "School of Traditional Ukrainian Folk Dance. Part 1" has been released. The 72-minute DVD movie explains in detail the main dance steps, methods of performing individual and pair turns, walks, gives four types of polka, which are components of Ukrainian folk dances, and also contains 22 dances from Kyiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Poltava, Dnepropetrovsk, Zhytomyr , Vinnitsa region, in particular, the famous "Potato", which Bozhychi recorded in the Dnepropetrovsk region. We hope that the publication of this video guide will stop the piracy practice of some folklore ensembles publishing their video guides based on the dances they learned from the Bojicians. With the onset of warm weather, the recording of the second part of the video tutorial will begin, the highlight of which will be hopak and authentic dance videos. nine0006

"Ukrainian dances. Part 1" (2008)

The disc was recorded in collaboration with virtuoso violinist Sergei Okhrimchuk, a famous musician who plays not only folk, but also modern music, performing together with Oleg Skrypka, "Okean Elzy", Ruslana, the Breton group "Red Cardel" (France) and others. The leaders of the Bozhychi Ilya Fetisov and Susanna Karpenko play the accordion-"wreath" and the tambourine.
The "Triples of Music", which resulted, did not set out to convey any specific regional style - the melodies presented here are widely used in Ukraine. We were interested in the spirit of folk performance, manifested here in the composition of "trinity music", widespread in Ukraine since the beginning of the 20th century - violin, accordion and bubo. nine0005 Preservation of the principles of musical performance inherent in "triplets of music" (as one folk performer aptly noted, "triplets of music" triples music) became possible thanks to the active folklore expeditionary research of all members of the trio. As with the traditional trinity, here each instrument performs the dance melody in its own way, changing it with each performance, which avoids monotony in sound.
Handicraft instruments also help to convey the sound of rural "troist music" - a violin made in Zhytomyr Polissya after the last war, an accordion-"wreath" made in the Kiev region in the 1st half. 20th century and bubo. nine0005 The disc contains 14 melodies of dances recorded by the Bozhichs in the Kiev region, Zhytomyr region, Chernihiv region, Sumy region, Poltava region and Dnepropetrovsk region. The duration of the disc is 50 minutes. Sound recording and mastering were made by the famous Kyiv sound engineer Maxim Kapusta (collaboration/albums: Oleg Skrypka and "Screams of Vidoplyasova", "Tabula Rasa", Irina Bilyk, etc.). The release of the 2nd part of the CD "Ukrainian Dances" and the 2nd part of the DVD "School of Traditional Ukrainian Folk Dance" is planned for 2010.
