Manitoba Ukrainian Dance

Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival Carina Romagnoli Photo: Norbert K. Iwan rom March 16-18, dancers representing twelve Ukrainian dance schools from across Manitoba took the stage at F the Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival. The Festival, in its sixth year, is hosted by Troyanda Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and held at Pantages Playhouse Theatre in Winnipeg. The Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival originated with the goal of creating a professional theatre atmosphere that gave amateur Ukrainian dancers the opportunity to perform and learn from the constructive criticism of the year’s adjudicators. This year, we welcomed Ms. Sonya Horner (Saskatoon, SK) and Mr. Vasyl Kanevets (Edmonton, AB) to make up our adjudicator panel. Both individuals shared their vast knowledge and expertise with the dancers and instructors onstage and in the workshops offered throughout the weekend. We are grateful for the support of The Winnipeg Foundation who sponsored the weekend workshops. 6 Український Вінніпеґ - КВІТЕНЬ 2018 -

Saturday evening invited the public to the popular Showcase performance. The Showcase gave the winners of group awards and chosen entries an opportunity to perform their entry again in a non-competitive setting. The second half of the show held the Hopak competition, with Novice, Senior and Adult entries. We would like to recognize all of the individuals and schools who won awards this year, and would like to congratulate Sopilka Ukrainian Dance School for achieving the weekend’s highest overall average, and winning the Troyanda Trophy! The weekend held an impressive collection of performances! It is evident Manitoba is home to many passionate instructors and choreographers who share their love and passion for Ukrainian Dance with their students. This passion shines through as the excitement in each dancer as they wait backstage for their turn to perform, the smiles beaming on their faces as they take the stage, and the undeniable emotion following their performance. УВ Congratulations to everyone involved in the Manitoba Ukrainian Dance Festival!
