"Trepak" (Russian: Трепак) (Ukrainian: Трoпак, Трiпак) is one of the several consecutive ethnic dances in Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's famous ballet The Nutcracker. It is based on the traditional Ukrainian folk dance known in Ukrainian as the Tropak or Tripak.
The "Trepak" often also goes under the name "Russian Dance" (the other ethnic dances of the ballet have dual names as well, e.g. "Tea" is also "Chinese Dance"). The "Trepak" is arguably the most popular dance of the ballet (although a case could be made for both the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and the "Waltz of the Flowers", which are heard more often than the "Trepak"). The dance makes much use of ethnic Ukrainian folk melodies.
