The Russian 19th century poet Nekrasov wrote a poem for which the tune “Korobushka” was later written. The tune became very popular in late 19th century Russian cities and countryside. Soon a dance “Korobushka” developed. It is said that in the beginning of the 20th century, Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine brought the dance to the USA.
