Back with flying colours for one exciting, celebratory concert is the Shumka School of Dance with their Winter Concert. Shumka School of Dance combines the traditional dance of Ukraine, the Shumka, with other styles and genres to achieve a strong dance-focused skill set with a sound work ethic for all their students. Many dance steps, melodies and costume pieces from the Ukrainian culture are used in their performances with ballet-based folk-staged dance being influential in their routines as well. The School’s connection to Canada is also represented and appreciated in the body language used in mime sequences with dense and fast tempo choreography, adding a layered and textured representation to their shows. Some of their most popular shows, such as ‘Ancestors and Elders’ and ‘Mosquito’s Wedding’, beautifully mesh the different cultural influences to create fresh, unique pieces that are emotional and striking. Their passion is to engage and encourage people from all ethnic backgrounds, giving confidence and experience to their performers, as well providing stunning shows for audiences. Their Winter Concert is the perfect opportunity to experience a special one-night-only show that will combine all their passion, talent and community into one magnificent concert full of colours, dancing and music. Make sure you’re there!
