Ukrainian Dance is amazingly popular in Canada today. We dance mostly on stages now, but our dances are rooted in performances from Ukrainian villages many years ago. The goal of this book is to shed some light on traditional dance in Ukrainian villages. Choreographers, dancers and spectators may enjoy getting a better image of Ukrainian dance as it connects from village to stage.
