All over the world, Ukrainian dance is known for its colour, energy, and spunk. Although many people in Calgary do have Ukrainian ancestry, you don’t have to be Ukrainian to enjoy the beauty of this dance and culture, and the Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Society has summer camps for all kids ages 4 and up!
The Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Society is a professionally operated dance school, focusing on excellence, teamwork, community, and pride. Their mission is to provide the best Ukrainian dance instruction in Calgary and foster an atmosphere of learning. The dance society provides technical dance training and encourages an appreciation and love of Ukrainian dance and culture, while also bringing the beauty and colour of Ukrainian dance to audiences near and far.
This summer, you can choose between Culture Camps (ages 4 and up) from July 25 – 29, 2022, or a Ukrainian Dance Intensive (ages 13 and up) from August 8 – 12, 2022. These camps run from 9 am to 4 pm, with free care starting at 8:30 am and ending at 5 pm. Need more time? You can get extended care beyond those times for a fee.
Culture Camps (Ages 4 and up)
The Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Society offers a week of rich experience during their Culture Camps, from July 25 – 29, 2022. During the week, campers will receive 14 hours of high-quality Ukrainian dance instruction and will get to explore many entertaining aspects of Ukrainian cultural activities that are designed for their particular age group. Kids can pinch perogies and learn Ukrainian cooking or take part in Ukrainian crafts, like learning the basics of embroidery. They will love the Pysanka (Ukrainian egg decorating), making borscht, or learning new songs and games.
Ukrainian Dance Intensive (Ages 13 and up)
From August 8 – 12, 2022, teens ages 13 and up can join the Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Intensive. During this week, campers will receive 25 hours of quality Ukrainian Dance instruction from Tryzub’s Artistic Director, Shane Gibson. Dancers will focus on advanced ballet and dance techniques and body mechanics. They can also explore their inner Ukrainian Dance character while learning fun and creative choreography.
Remember — you don’t have to be Ukrainian to enjoy these terrific camps! Give your child a unique cultural experience this summer and fill their life with energy and colour. Registration is now open and if you register by May 31, 2022, you will enjoy early bird pricing.
