SUZIRYA UKRAINIAN DANCE THEATRE
"Suzirya" means a constellation of many stars. Under the direction of Serguei Makarov, Suzirya is recognized for its unique style of Ukrainian dance fused with ballet. An invitation to perform for the Queen led to being cast in the Calgary Stampede Grandstand Show and thus began Suzirya's recognition as a premiere performance company.
The delicate elegance of the ladies contrasted by the strength and power of the men has delighted audiences around the world. The dedication, support, and desire to share the Ukrainian culture with others that has been shown by not only dancers, but by all involved in this organization, has allowed this group to develop into the dynamic organization it is today.
This group of passionate professionally trained dancers have travelled around the globe performing in festivals. Promoting Ukrainian culture throughout the city of Calgary has always been a prime focus for Suzirya. Performances for the Ukrainian community, city arts events, and private functions has made it possible for Suzirya to continue to share their passion for Ukrainian culture, through dance, one step at a time.
