The Dovbush School of Ukrainian Dance
The AUUC Dovbush School of Ukrainian Dance is dedicated to preserving and developing Ukrainian folk dance. Its long history of providing quality, creative dance instruction has drawn Ukrainian-Canadians, and those from diverse cultural backgrounds to its programs. From preschoolers to teens, the School welcomes all dancers.
Ukrainian Folk-Stage dance is an exhilarating and challenging form employing classical ballet and traditional folk dance. Consistently recognized at the BC Ukrainian Cultural Festival’s dance competition with awards and praise, the dancers are continually enriched with innovative choreography and technical challenges.
Traditions and authenticity hold a special place in the School’s dance programs: children learn to distinguish between regional dances, and themes following the seasons and ancient rituals continue to bear fruit as inspiration to modern choreographers. Teachers and Directors are highly-trained in Ukrainian dance, enhanced by ballet or other training, and are passionate about imparting the joy and artistry of Ukrainian dance to the next generation.
