Crash Course in Ukrainian dance

I recently came across a list of Ukrainian dance moves here which appears to be for the nimble and *very* brave.

But, if you fit that description, here are a few to get started. Proceed at your own risk ... Nash Holos assumes no responsibility! :-)

Perekidni - A cartwheel with no hands, where the torso is horizontal and the legs are more vertical.

Kiltse - A jump performed by arching the back and kicking both legs out at the same time backwards to reach the head.

Koleso - A cartwheel performed with one or two hands.

Koza - About a 45 degree angle tumble in the air. The legs are held at a bent 2nd position.

Full list here.
