The UNF School of Dance is Manitoba’s longest running Ukrainian dance school. 
In 2014, a partnership with Rusalka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble was formed in order to secure the Ensemble's future.   

From a young age, Rusalka UNF School of Dance focuses on proper body mechanics and alignment built on a strong foundation of ballet. Using a modified Vaganova method that incorporates calisthenics and strengthening, the School is able to ensure that children develop the necessary strength and technique needed to succeed at  higher levels of dance. 

Under the artistic direction and management of Rusalka, dancers at Rusalka UNF School of Dance will learn from some of the strongest and most talented dancers in our province.
