Dance has been a vital part of the Ukrainian culture, which can be traced back to third millennium BC.
Traditional folk dancing is referred to as Ukrainian Dance, and is noted for its precise choreography and extremely energetic routines. Watching one of these performances is breathtaking as well as spellbinding, and there are a number of dance troupes in Ukraine that keep this significant part of their heritage alive. What once was a ritual that combined dance, poetry, music and songs, is now a lively display of the history of Ukraine.
