The Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Company shares the stage with Rochester talent for a highly entertaining performance

Rochester, NY. Internationally acclaimed Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Company from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada brings their Kaleidoscope of Ukrainian Dance tour to Rochester this fall. Cheremosh will feature performances from the Ukrainian Arts Foundation of Greater Rochester Dance Group, uniting Ukrainian communities from opposite sides of the continent.

“The Ukrainian community in Alberta is tightly woven,” says Graham Currie, President of the Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Company. “We want to expand that sense of unity across Ukrainian communities around the globe. Ukrainians in Rochester strive to preserve our culture and we connect with that on a very personal level.”

A high-caliber and professional Cheremosh show is tough to beat, but something magical happens when Cheremosh joins forces with other performing groups. Senior Cheremosh dancer Zorya Belanger has been part of several of these collaborative performances: “Performing together with other dancers who share our same passion for Ukrainian dance brings an unbelievable level of excitement and energy to the stage. There’s some sense of competition, but also mutual respect and camaraderie as we work simultaneously to create an unforgettable show for the audience!”

Do not miss Cheremosh and special guests perform at the Hochstein Performance Hall on Thursday, October 8th at 7pm. Tickets are $35 available at the Ukrainian Federal Credit Union Rochester Main Office and online at brownpapertickets.com. Plus, a limited number of tickets are available at the door.
