Your Donation: The Crucial Link Between Community and Culture

When you donate to the Ukrainian Shumka Dancers, you bring the legend to life!

Your donation makes it possible for Shumka to create the art that brings so much joy to the lives of thousands. You also help to provide real opportunities for youth and young professionals for whom Ukrainian dance and culture is both a passion and a livelihood. Your donation is the crucial link between community and culture; between the artists who make the art and those who reap its benefits as performers or audience members.

Join Us! Decades of support, enthusiasm and encouragement speak volumes!

Shumka’s passion for, pride in, and love of, our Ukrainian heritage are only a few of the reasons its beauty has become so ingrained in Alberta’s cultural psyche. Shumka draws strength and inspiration from the Ukrainian Canadian contribution to Canada and from the wider community, which believes in the company’s pursuit of the evolution of the art form. Our community roots run deep, and are reflected in the support of our patrons, funders, donors and audiences.

The Ukrainian Shumka Dancers are humbled to be a part of the community in which we create our art.

Shumka believes that it is vitally important that our work be relevant and meaningful to the artists and audiences of today. To express the aesthetic of the time in which we live, the stories told and statements made must speak to the experiences of our collective soul, marking our place in history.
