Vohon Ukrainian Dance Ensemble
Over the last 30 years, the Vohon Ukrainian Dance Ensemble has excited audiences with both their regional repertoire and their character storylines. The ensemble creates a rich display of Ukrainian dance that lights the stage from the moment the curtain opens to the final Hopak.
The Vohon Ukrainian Dance Ensemble was co-founded in 1988 by Ken Kachmar and Rick Wacko. For almost a decade, Vohon has been under the artistic direction of Trish Kushniruk, Larissa Pohoreski, and Matt Karpiak. Together, the artistic team brings over 70 years of dance experience and work to create challenging and engaging choreography for dancers and audience members alike; the result is a captivating display of Ukrainian dance.
In its time, Vohon has shared its passion for Ukrainian dance on both local and international stages including festivals across Western Canada, the United States, Australia, Germany, Scotland, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Japan, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, England, Portugal, and Ukraine. Vohon is a strong ambassador for Edmonton, as well as their province and country.
