Participants will receive critical technique enhancement from the Virsky choreographers, instructors, artistic director, as well as some of the dancers. This experience cannot be offered outside of Ukraine and it will push dancers to their full potential, give them an unforgettable trip, as well as irreplaceable knowledge and memories.
During your down time, you'll get to experience all that Kyiv has to offer, including shopping at the Andrijevsky Uzviz, a boat ride down the Dnipro River, and a special dinner with Rozhanytsia Folk Band.
Wrap it all up with a special 'graduation performance' with Virsky's trainees and a zabava, for a trip that you'll never forget!
