On Saturday the Susydka dancers from Vita twirled and clicked their heels at their annual recital.
The Susydka Ukrainian Dance Club has come a long way in the last five years, winning awards and gold medals in Ukrainian dancing under their talented instructor from Ukraine. The dancers show off their pride for Ukrainian culture through their graceful arms, strong footwork and brilliant smiles.
The afternoon featured traditional dances from the Poltava, Transcarpathian and Bukovynian regions as well as fun character dances like ‘The Gossiping Babas’ and a dance featuring sibling rivalry over a tambourine.
Susydka performs at many other venues throughout the year, including the Folklorama Kiev Pavilion and the Gardenton Festival. Keep your eyes open for your talented local dance club!
