"Astonishing!" - The New York Times.
CALGARY, April 26 /CNW/ - Boen Arts is pleased to announce Virsky National Dance Company of Ukraine's 2010 Canadian Tour. The tour will commence on October 7 in Vancouver and will continue to travel throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, and Ontario. Tickets are on-sale now.
The renowned professional dance ensemble under the name of Pavlo Virsky is famous for its bright colors, unity of content and form, and the vivid embodiment of its stage concept. This magnificent artistic group embraces the beauty of its native Ukraine. Each and every performance is romantic, elevated, and passionate. The ensemble's diverse concert programs have been warmly received by audiences around the world.
Virsky started in 1937 by two well known Ukrainian ballet masters, Pavlo Virsky and Mykola Bolotov. From 1955 to 1975 the group was lead by Virsky whose exciting choreography has amazed the dance world for years. It was under the guidance of Virsky that the company matured into the professional dance ensemble that the world enjoys today.
In 1980, Myroslav Vantukh, Virsky's disciple and an expert in folk traditions and ethnography took over from Virsky and continued the creative genius, preservation and development of the folk choreographic art form. Virsky continues to grow under the direction of Vantukh as he takes the dancers to new heights of accomplishment through his ever expanding repertoire of new dances and continues to entertain and educate the world about the talents of Ukraine.
