Syllabus for Ukrainian Dance
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:
- Offering consistency in training
- Providing logical progression from one level to the next
- Standardizing the use of terminology
- 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.
