Experience Rusalka UNF School of Dance

Dancing Together 

In 2020 the Rusalka Dancing Together initiative was born to foster relationships between all dance students within the Rusalka organization. The students at the school will receive the opportunity to visit with and learn from current members of the Rusalka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble throughout the dance year. This very enjoyable and valuable collaboration has served to inspire our dancers and bring together our family in dance. 

Standardized Syllabus 

We are pleased to announce that all classes with the school of dance will be following an incremental and progressive instructional syllabus that was specifically developed for the Rusalka UNF School of Dance. This program will focus on and instill the importance and value of fundamental skills that will set the foundation for consistent and successful Ukrainian folk-dance training and learning. 

Technique & Choreography Workshops 

Dancers of select classes will have the opportunity to participate in technique and choreography workshops up and above their weekly dance training. This exciting initiative allows dancers of the Rusalka UNF School to further their dance education by learning from a variety of professional instructors and choreographers. 

Continuing with overwhelming popularity….  

Druzi I - Adult  Recreational Ukrainian Dance Class 

Did you dance growing up? Maybe you have never danced and want to give it a try? We have something for you! Our Adult Recreational Dance Class will offer a positive and energetic environment filled with exercise, music, fun, and friendship. Come and enjoy all the splendour that Ukrainian folk-dance classes have to offer. No experience required. 

Druzi II - Adult Advanced Ukrainian Dance Class

This class is designed for experienced dancers who may be former members of Rusalka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble or dancers who have had an elevated level of dance training. If you would like to be challenged in an exciting and motivating class, this one's for you. Participants can expect to experience a wonderfully structured rehearsal style similar to what exists on the Rusalka dance floor.

Razom-Parent and Child Creative Movement Dance Class

This is an introductory dance class specifically designed for a child’s first experience on the dance floor. It will take both the student and their caregiver on a magical journey of dance and discovery.  In a creative and encouraging environment, the class will captivate the dancer’s imagination and help further develop fine and gross motor skills.  Structured activities are balanced with the opportunity for free dance play and movement exploration using songs, games, and props all with a Ukrainian flare. And you get to be right there beside them, as you experience their first dance class together.

Returning this season…

Studia Enrichment Program

Our new STUDIA Enrichment Program is a wonderful supplementary dance education program designed to enhance students' dance experience and challenge them technically and artistically. This class is designed to offer an addition to the core syllabus training rather than a replacement for it. Student’s will learn in a focussed, motivational, and positive learning environment. The class will concentrate on furthering classical and character barre technique, centre work, fundamentals of Ukrainian dance lexicon, and regional etudes. Enrichment students may be invited to learn an additional piece of choreography that will be presented at the year end recital.

NOTE: Students must be registered in a full year dance class at Rusalka UNF to participate in the Enrichment Program.
