A Russian dancer performs as part of a special event called, Encounters with World Cultures in Seoul.
Previously you saw Mexican traditional dancers' photos from this event. If anyone can explain the origins of this dance and which culture it belongs to, I'm all ears.

But Dracula is Romanian, no?

The supporting cast of cape-wearing androgynous men (& woman) scramble chaotically behind an incredibly flexible lady in fishnet stockings.

It really takes less than 1 minute. I'd really appreciate the support. Thanks a lot!
