Welcome to Zirka Ukrainian Dancers
The Zirka Ukrainian Dancers have emerged as a vital element in the preservation of Ukrainian heritage in the Okanagan Valley. Since 1979 the Zirka Ukrainian Dancers have grown to over 45 members. In 1997 Zirka become a registered non-profit society who continues to perform throughout the community, and are wonderful ambassadors of the Okanagan when travelling for performances or to competitions outside of our region. Upon registration you automatically become a member of the society.
Zirka’s repertoire consists of five regional styles, each with its own style of costume and dance. Each year new regional and/or character dances are added to enhance and create excitement to our shows.
The Board of Directors and Committees strive to provide an environment for your dancer that will build confidence, self-esteem, physical fitness, grace, fun and cultural experience through dance. The dancers are a committed group of young people from all different cultural backgrounds who enjoy dance and Zirka endeavors to find the best artistic direction available for its continued success.
WE OFFER…Instruction in Ukrainian dance from pre-school to young adult, beginning with basic steps and movements progressing to structured classical and character techniques at the intermediate and senior level.
