Whirlwind Moves - Ukrainian Dance with SHUMKA
At this “Whirlwind Moves” workshop, meet two Shumka dancers and learn some basics of Ukrainian dance including an introduction to style, technique, combinations of steps and a trick or two! Peruse Ukrainian dance costumes from various regions of Ukraine and those adapted for recent Shumka productions!
The Ukrainian Shumka Dancers are celebrating their 60th Anniversary with their tenth national tour throughout 2022. Canada’s only professional Ukrainian dance company, Shumka has cultural roots in Ukraine and has been developing the art form in Edmonton for decades. Shumka means “whirlwind,” which is an apt description of their lively and energetic style on stage!
