Cyrillic Handwriting

Hi all,
Pardon me if this question is sort of basic/should be obvious, but I'm really quite ignorant:

When people write by hand in Cyrillic, what form of the alphabet do they often use? I know that there is the block print Cyrillic used on computers, and that there is a Cyrillic cursive. However, is this cursive only used occasionally, or by preference, as it is with the Roman alphabet? If Cyrillic has a handwritten print variety, does it differ considerably from the type used in printed materials?

Also--does anyone know where I might find materials for learning how to write Cyrillic handwriting [for free]? A simple Google search has not proven helpful at all, and I'm sort of surprised that it would be more elusive than that. Maybe I just haven't been searching the right terms.

In any case, thanks in advance for any help! :]
