Kalyna Dance Group

Meet the Kalyna Performing Arts Company

Kalyna’s mission is to reach beyond the stage and energize the audience through dance. Each move shows excitement and pride in the beautiful art that is Ukrainian dance.
Based out of the Ukrainian National Federation in Toronto, The Kalyna Performing Arts Company honours the group’s rich history and deeply-seeded roots in the Ukrainian-Canadian community.
Kalyna’s passionate and talented Ukrainian dancers are led by Stefan Kuziw, whose unique, dynamic, and exceptionally-executed choreography quickly made the group a crowd-favourite all over North America.
Stefan and his dedicated performers are thrilled to share their journey and amaze you with their energy and love for Ukrainian dance.

How much experience do I need?
