Chaban Ukrainian Dance Group of Thunder Bay

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the Chaban Ukrainian Dance Group of Thunder Bay is known throughout the community for its volunteer contributions during the past three decades.  Chaban is an outstanding group of dedicated and talented citizens, sharing their heritage and culture through the beautiful art, music and athleticism of Ukrainian dance.  Since its inception, Chaban's driving force has been its volunteers who take on such roles as dance instructor, group administration, performers, and organizing performances at a multitude of venues.  Chaban volunteer members contribute countless hours a year to teaching, costumes, choreography, organizing fundraisers, and performing.  Chaban showcases events in the community and has been an ambassador for Thunder Bay and Canada on national and international stages.  Chaban dancers have delighted local audiences by giving back to the community in performances at Senior and Retirement Homes.  In addition to coordinating over 100 dancers ages four and up, Chaban members have volunteered their teaching talent to local groups, enhancing the understanding and appreciation of Ukrainian dance.
