Ukrainian Dance World Presents a unique opportunity, in collaboration with Virsky National Ukrainian Dance Ensemble!

Virsky Summer Academy is an annual certificate summer training program, which is designed specially for all abilities of Ukrainian dancers around the world. It's for any Ukrainian dancer who wants to push themselves to dance at the highest levels. This course will prepare you to be the best that you can be, by dancing side-by-side with the world’s best.
Each morning will feature a ballet or character class, followed by technique training of tricks, jumps, turns and generally learning to defy the laws of physics and gravity. Then you will spend the afternoon learning Virsky dances from all the regions of Ukraine and exploring the explosive spirit of Ukrainian culture that was embodied in the very dances of Pavlo Virsky himself.
Only a limited amount of participants will be accepted to make sure each dancer gets the most out of Virsky Summer Academy, so register today!

Drop us a line if you have any questions about this fabulous dance opportunity!
