PEACE RIVER MUZYKA DANCERS
Vegreville & District Co-op BAND SHOWCASE
Saturday, July 8
Peace River Muzyka Dancers was a vision set in motion by a small group of women who wanted to bring Ukrainian culture to the Peace River area. In 1975, this group of ladies found Brenda Muzyka who would travel weekly from Edmonton via bus to instruct dance and costume making.
Our group is a community based non-profit recreational Ukrainian dance club with the objective to encourage the development and expression of Ukrainian culture as an integral part of Canadian life. We promote a Ukrainian cultural experience for dancers, their families and the community through the sharing of dance, food, and music. Our current instructor travels weekly from Edmonton to provide our dancers with instruction of dance, culture and history from different regions of Ukraine. Our dancers range in age from three to adult.
Performing at the Pysanka Festival in 2023 are members of Peace River Muzyka Dancers oldest youth group, Odessa.
