Description

The Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival strives to create an experience that will allow dancers and instructors to grow and develop under the constructive criticism of our accomplished adjudicators ​Shannon Gabrush & Maksym Zabutnyy, while having the opportunity to perform for an audience in a theatre atmosphere. The Festival will be conducted in a professional manner where all aspects of theatre etiquette will be applied to the dancers’ onstage performance, backstage organization and audience members.

Sunday afternoon of the Festival concludes with our Showcase Performance, which is open to the public. The Showcase gives highly ranked performers from the Festival an opportunity to take the stage again. The Showcase performance includes the highly anticipated Hopak competition during its second half.

Organizer Troyanda Ukrainian Dance Ensemble

Organizer of Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival Showcase

Established in 1979, Troyanda Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is proud to call Selkirk, Manitoba their home. Troyanda, meaning rose, operates under the objective to preserve and promote Ukrainian culture through the art of Ukrainian dance. The group of young, talented performers has grown to be one of Canada’s most vibrant and energetic Ukrainian Dance Ensembles.
    

Troyanda has had the opportunity to develop an extensive repertoire of dances to represent the diverse regions of Ukraine. The Ensemble is honoured to have worked with many talented choreographers including Svitlana and Bohdan Tkachyshyn, Serhij Koroliuk, Raphael Malinowski, Vincent Rees, and Leonid Sydorchuk upon countless others. Working with such world-renowned talent has given Troyanda the ability to truly capture the essence of Ukrainian culture and tradition. 
    
Troyanda has amazed audiences worldwide with their performances and undeniable passion for Ukrainian dance. Currently under the direction of Mrs. Kristina Frykas and Mr. Paul Doroniuk, Troyanda continues to perfect their art and inspire audiences of all kinds. The artistic team provides the Ensemble with professional instruction and expertise in Ukrainian dance. Under their direction, the dancers have developed a strong sense of determination, loyalty, and pride of their culture and tradition which shines through as their rich spirit and energy onstage. 
    
Troyanda’s dancers agree why their passion for the Ensemble runs high – they are a family. The encouragement and focus of the dancers is truly unique. Not only is each member committed to the Ensemble, they are committed to each other, making for an unbreakable bond of their ever-growing family.
