Our Dancers

Our dance school is comprised of ten different groups of dancers ages 4 and up. Zorianka's program of activities enriches each dancer culturally, musically, physically and socially in all aspects of Ukrainian folk art. Through the efforts and high-calibre instruction of our Artistic Director and instructors, each dancer, beginning with our Novices, receives a balanced teaching of ballet, technique and discipline thus not only progressing in skill and confidence but also in strength, commitment and dedication.

Besides groups for all ages of young dancers, we have an adult group that caters to the more mature dancer or those that are "young at heart".  

In September 2017 we are pleased to be adding two *additional classes our Enrichment and Shining Stars Classes.

Our Enrichment Class will be made up of dancers who are successful in the audition process. This class will add that extra challenge of choreography and technique and these dancers will be performing at competitions and shows. 

Our Shining Stars Class is for any aspiring dancers with special needs.  We look forward to welcoming these new dancers to our family.  At this time we are not wheel chair accessible.  Poster

Zorianka's repertoire consists of eight different regional costumes (most of them are group-owned) representing Poltava, Hutzulshchyna, Volyn, Transcarpathia and Polissia.

The group is run by a dedicated group of parents and volunteers who are committed in keeping a sense of culture, community and fellowship. They are the backbone of this organization and they continue to effortlessly contribute their time, talents and friendships to this dance group.

Our dance club qualifies for KidSport grants.  Contact information is 780-492-0105 http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/edmonton/apply-for-assistance/
