Ukrainian staged dance is a popular element of Ukrainian culture. In Canada, Ukrainian dance flourished and has transformed into a distinct symbol of Canadian-Ukrainian culture. Each Canadian province shows an evolution in its Ukrainian dance that is distinct from the others, depending on where the choreographers found inspiration.
Ukrainian dance in Montréal has been influenced strongly by the spectacular dance model, which was associated most strongly with the state sponsored dance companies coming from the Soviet Union. A question arose regarding this observation: why would these rather anti-Soviet communities in Canada choose a Soviet style to represent Ukrainians? And why would Québécois choreographers repeatedly choose to add Ukrainian dance into their international dance repertoire?
The goal of this research project is to set a chronological and aesthetic framework of Ukrainian dance in Montréal and to observe the main influences that changed its aesthetics both inside and outside the Ukrainian community.
