Live the life of a Professional Ukrainian Dancer

Spend an incredible “Year in Ukraine”. Organized by Cobblestone Freeway Tours in association with Ukrainian Dance World, our program gives you the opportunity to learn from professionals, dance amongst Ukraine’s best ensembles, soak up Ukrainian culture and improve your Ukrainian Dance skills like never before.

Spending 2 months in each city, you will dance every day, study Ukrainian language two times a week, go on excursions and soak up everything Ukraine has to offer.

This year we have re-imagined our program, and are offering shorter sessional options. You will be able to participate for 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 months with the following ensembles.

2021-2022 Program now open for booking!
