Russian folk song and dance Trio BARYNYA story
In the end of 1991 extremely talented Russian dancer Sasha Anchutin, who was trained and performed with world known Moyseev Dance Company, joined the group as choreographer and dancer. That was the beginning of ensemble Barynya. The first show took place at Russian restaurant "Fyodoroff", Carle Place, Long Island, New York. The program of the trio always started with Russian folk dance "BARYNYA", which was selected as a name of the trio.
The word "Barynya" stands for a fast Russian folk dance. In old times in Russia the word "Barynya" (Landlady) was used by simple folks as a form of addressing to a woman of higher class. The Barynya dance is an alternation of chastushkas (limericks) and frenetic dancing. The Barynya chastuskas used to have a refrain "Barynya, barynya, sudarynya-barynya", or "Barynya ty moya, sudarynya ty moya". The content is always humoristic. The dancing goes without special choreography and consists mainly of fancy stomping and traditional Russian squatwork ("prisyadka", "vprisyadku").

"The Peddler" (Korobeiniki)|
This lyric folk song and dance has been a Russian favorite for 150 years. A countryside peddler has a basket filled with attractive prints and brocades. At first-sight he falls in love with a pleasant girl. He is ready to lay at her feet all his worldly goods for a glance from her dark eyes and a kiss from her ruby-red-lips. Lyrics are by the great poet N. Nekrasov. "Only the dark night knows how they got on together".

First official record of Russian dancing is related to year 907 when Great Russian Prince Oleg (Vechshiy Oleg) celebrated his victory over Greeks in Kiev. During the Gala Dinner 16 male dancers dressed as bears and four bears dressed as Russian dancers performed for the guests. After the dinner was over Great Prince commanded to release the bears into the wild and to execute all the dancers.
