The Syllabus for Ukrainian Dance (SUD) is a fully researched and developed curriculum program that ensures correct advancement of dance skill and technique and enhances the dance training process by:

  1. Offering consistency in training
  2. Providing logical progression from one level to the next
  3. Standardizing the use of terminology
  4. Standardizing the style and technique of steps and exercises

Throughout the year, dancers follow a pre-determined course of study, including set exercises at the barre, from the corner, and in the centre. These exercises are set to custom-orchestrated music. They complement the learning process and contribute to the overall long-term development of the dancer. Every new exercise and skill learned is like a fresh piece of a puzzle. 

When the puzzle is complete, a dancer should have the technical skills to work at a high dance level. In this manner, we ensure proper growth and critical skill development while providing students with a solid foundation of skills and knowledge in dance theatre, drama, and ethnography.

“In House” evaluations are offered annually. These evaluations build confidence and provide students with a sense of achievement and an indication of their technical ability.
