Folk Dancing in Kiev

Has anyone tried looking for any traditional Ukrainian folk dancing performances in Kiev? Where might they be performed and when?

1. Re: Folk Dancing in Kiev

One of the most fascinating experiences are at the folk festivals.

Kraina Mriy is one that I think of as really worth seeing! http://www.krainamriy.com/rozdil50.html In 2010 this annual festival will take place on July 10.

Many dancing schools and groups here don’t have their own premises suitable for performances, so it’s kind of tough to find any regular genuine shows in Kyiv. Only most reputable ones can gather large halls, like Virski Academic Ensemble that had several concerts in Ukraina Concert Hall in early March.

Sometimes academic dancing schools give concerts as part of their graduation exams; these are staged then in the National Opera or National Music Academy at daytime.

Few night clubs and concert halls feature adapted folk dances, but they are far from being a dancing experience, rather some kind of light entertainment.

Are you looking into any particular dates? I could have checked the schedule of performances to see if there’s anything to attend.

Hi Cora

Thanks as ever for your informative reply. I was looking for something over the last easter weekend but didn't end up finding something. Not to worry - there is plenty else to do in Kiev.
