Ready to Dance With Rushnychok?
We are very excited to welcome back familiar faces as well as new dancers to the Rushnychok family. Here is a little information about Rushnychok to help you.
We are Rushnychok Ukrainian Folk Dance Association or RUFDAI for short.
Our group was established in 1967.
We are a not-for-profit organization with a parent-run board.
Our dance instructors have over 60 years of combined teaching experience!
Classes are all on Wednesday. It is important to us that families can bring all their dancers of all ages to one place on the same day.
We limit our class sizes to maintain Wednesday instruction days.
Our dancers are ages 3 through 18.
We include formative ballet classes at the beginning of each Ukrainian week for junior to senior-level dancers.
We host a yearly Malnaka & Year-End Recital.
Our Zirka class (3-4yr olds) performs at Malanka and Year-End Recital.
Dancers ages 5+ attend Ukrainian dance festivals in Saskatchewan and sometimes Alberta.
Our dancers perform outside performances such as Folkfest, Ukrainian Day in the Park, Canada’s National Ukrainian Dance Festival, nursing homes, and other outside opportunities at their option.
Tour opportunities are available for all dancers.
We require each family to be on a committee. Don’t get scared… we have experienced committee chairs and our committees run smooth like butter!
We provide costumes for group dances from our extensive costume collection. Costumes for optional dance are available to all Rushnuchok dancers for rent.
Rushnychok does a club liquor raffle in the fall. Other individual fundraising opportunities are available.
Competitive classes are now full; however, space remains in our non-competitive Zirka class. Please reach out to email@example.com to enroll your 3-4 year old.
