Our Classes

Malenkiy (little) - Age 3-5

(no competitions, 1 dance)

It is time to start to introduce our classes at Rushnychok.

Our very first class is our rising stars! Zirka ⭐️💫🌟✨🤩

This is our class for 3-4year old dancers. They are ready (or maybe mom is) for a social activity away from guardians. These young dancers learn some fundamentals of dance but even more they learn how to be in the dance studio. They learn rhythms, hopping, skipping, clapping, timing and most of all independence💛💙

They get to perform at Rushnychok’s annual Malanka and Spring Recital.

Our program for our youngest dancers is growing. We are over half full. Classes run on Wednesdays from 4:15pm-5:00pm. If you are interested in registering go to Rushnychok.ca to register. Don’t miss out. Space is limited.


Kazka (fairy tale) - Age 5-7

2 competitions, 2 dances

This class is our first level of dancers that attend Dance Festivals. It is a big jump from Zirka but after a couple years learning how to be in the studio our Barvinok dancers take off quickly.

These dancers start to really delve into the basics of Ukrainian dance. Not only learning steps but also starting to focus on basic ballet exercises and fundamentals of Ukrainian dance.

These dancers perform at Malanka, spring recital, up to 3 dance festivals, folkfest and any other performances they are available for! We also highly support our young dancers taking on an extra solo, duet or small group dance. This helps them immerse themselves further in Ukrainian dance and they practice more💙💛

Our Barvinok class is almost full! If you want to get your kindergarten to grade 1 child into Ukrainian dance register asap! Rushnychok.ca

Veselka (rainbos) - Age 7-10

These dancers take the next step in their Ukrainian dance training by having a weekly dedicated ballet class. By this age our dancers feel comfortable dancing with the emotion of their dance and love to tell stories! As class time extends they grow more confident with turns and tricks.
