SHUMKA 60 On Tour

Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium
Shumka means “whirlwind,” a powerful display of artistry, energy and emotion through dance. Sixty years of performance history has shaped the Ukrainian Shumka Dancers signature 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 features 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.
