SHUMKA 60 On Tour: Celebrating in Eight Canadian Cities in 2020 

Dec 17 2019

After decades of performances near and far, the whirlwind returns with its tenth Canadian tour to eight cities, April to October 2020.

Shumka means “whirlwind,” a powerful display of artistry, energy and emotion through dance. Sixty years of performance history has shaped the Ukrainian Shumka Dancerssignature dance style. With true respect for their heritage, Shumka continually challenges conventional boundaries to define the experience of Ukraine Canadian dance today.

The Toronto Star called Shumka “Canada’s National Treasure,” and the Globe & Mail compared Shumka’s work to that of Riverdance.

Celebrating Shumka’s legacy as a leading dance company in Canada, SHUMKA 60 On Tour will feature two works including a salute to the past through an adaptation of Shumka’s celebrated Classic Hopak and Shumka’s whimsical Mosquito’s Wedding, a true feast for the eyes and a love story for all ages with a message that… all we need is love.
