Shumka means whirlwind and Classic Hopak is its signature piece. Applauded on stages around the world, Hopak celebrates tradition with choreographic patterns, grace and athleticism.

Shumka, Canada’s only professional Ukrainian dance company, presents dance-theatre touring productions and concert repertoire across Canada and around the world. Along with Alberta Ballet and Edmonton Opera, Shumka is honoured to be a resident company of the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton. More than 55 years of performance history has shaped Shumka’s signature dance style. While maintaining deep respect for their heritage, Shumka continually challenges conventional boundaries in order to define the experience of Ukrainian dance in the context of today.

This performance is part of the Fall For Dance North festival. For tickets and more information visit ffdnorth.com.
