Ballet Class strongly recommended.
Tryzub Adults
Advanced Adult Class 16+ yrs Mondays 7:15 - 8:45pm
Recreational Adult Class 16+ yrs Thursdays 8:00 - 9:00 pm

Our Advanced Adult Class is for former Ensemble members or dancers who danced at an elevated level and wish to to continue to be pushed as dancers without the commitment to dance more than once per week. Participants in the advanced class can expect a class that has similar training aspects to that of our Performance Company, and will even learn current and archived Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Ensemble repertoire!

Our recreational classes are designed for both the new and experienced Ukrainian dancer, for those just starting to learn or those wishing to continue their love of Ukrainian dance. Don't let the word 'recreational' fool you, this class will teach centuries old folk dances from Ukraine, as well as offer weekly dance training and choreography.
