The Hutsul people inhabit the area in and around the Carpathian Mountains. For this reason, they had a harsher existence and had to be adaptable to the severe climate and limited living space.
These differences represent themselves in the narrower skirts and pants and richness of colour and detail of costuming in this area.
Dance choreography for this region incorporates closed narrow high stepping movements. Dances include Hutsulski Tanets, Arkan and Kolomeyka.
