Tropak Ukrainian Dance Theatre

Tropak Ukrainian Dance Theatre was born of a dream to take traditional Ukrainian dance in British Columbia to a higher artistic level. Formed in 1994 as an adult company, it brings together dancers dedicated to the purpose of cultivating Ukrainian dance as a Canadian art form.

The company (which takes its name from an ancient Ukrainian dance) has performed extensively throughout Western Canada, the Pacific Northwest and California, consistently winning rave reviews for its high artistic standards, dynamic performance style and attention to costuming and music.

Ukrainian dance, as performed by Tropak Ukrainian Dance Theatre, is both sensual and magical. It is colourful and energetic. This is dance with universal appeal, featuring elements of traditional folk dance refined through the prism of classical ballet and presented with aesthetic integrity, panache and passion.
