Proposed Itinerary

Day
1-3
We hope to start our 2019 tour exploring the golden domed streets of Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city; with ancient charm and modern flare. Its beautiful landscapes, parks and gardens will charm and captivate you! Take the incredible chance to work with the renowned Virsky dance ensemble, and we hope to meet with the Veryovka Dance and Song ensemble. Trust us, you will be blown away by their skills and expertise!
Day
4-6
Next we will head to Vinnytsia to join the Barvinok Ensemble, and learn their unique Western-Central style of dance. Take the chance to soak up Ukrainian culture in an overnight stay in an authentic Ukrainian village (with Ukrainian village party, of course!)
Day
7-9
Time to explore the fairy-tale city of Kamyanets-Podilsky! This charming town has the friendliest of people, who will leave nothing but the greatest of impressions. We will take part in workshops with their Kamyanchanka ensemble, to attempt to master dances from Podillia. To round it off, we’ll have a zabava right under the famous castle walls! Where better to do a Kolomeyka?!
Day
10-12
Next we will head to Kolomiya, but not without a stop for some adventure! Who’s ready to explore some mysterious caves? Once in Kolomiya, we’ll join the famous Pokuttia Ensemble to learn some more dance styles. Did you know the Kolomiyka came from Pokuttia?! Or the Holubka? Now you do!
Day
13-14
After one final workshop with the Pokuttia ensemble, we can finally rest and relax and we head back to picturesque and historic Lviv, where you can sit back in a cam street-side café ad watch the world go by.
