At the heart of the Ukrainian Cultural Association is our dance classes. The Lloydminster Malanka Dancers offer classes from ages 3-adult for all abilities and cultural backgrounds. If you are looking for something new, rooted in vibrant culture and traditions, and want to have fun, try Ukrainian dancing!
We offer classes on Tuesday nights for our younger students and Wednesday night for our senior students. In addition to regular class time, the Malanka dancers enjoy many workshops to help them hone their skills. The Club also boasts many opportunities to perform at festivals, the Dine and Dance and our yearly Heritage Concert. Because culture is a huge part of our Club, throughout the year, we host many Zabava's (parties) and special events to mark integral events in the Ukrainian calendar.
Shawn Ostafie is in his 9th year of instruction with the Malanka Dancers, In addition to his work with us, he is also the Artistic Director of Dunai-Edmonton as well as a valued band member for the award-winning band, Millenia. Shawn has travelled extensively around the world and Canada performing and instructing, and winning awards. We are pleased to recognize Shawn as a part of our Malanka family.
