TRYZUB UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE
Founded in 1974, the Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Ensemble has been dazzling audiences with energetic repertoire for the past 46 years. Proud to call Calgary home, Tryzub continues to bring to life the beauty and colour of Ukrainian dance and folklore.
The ensemble ranges in age from 16 to 34 years. Over half the members are students, either in high school or pursuing post-secondary education, while others are in the workforce. They receive no pay for their efforts, but dance to achieve a higher level of perfection.
Currently under the artistic direction of Mr. Shane Gibson, Tryzub has recently been touring a brand new production titled "Heroiam Slava - Glory to the Heroes" with perfomances in Calgary, throughout Western Canada, and Ukraine. Through their dedication and commitment to excellence in Ukrainian dance, the members of the Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Ensemble continue to reach new levels of technical and artistic ability.
