Jordan Onyschuk - Instructor

Jordan loves Ukrainian dance as an art form where he can pour his energy into becoming the best dancer he can be, while at the same time, connecting with his heritage. Teaching Ukrainian dance provides him with an outlet to express his creativity. Jordan gains fulfillment from teaching the younger generations of Ukrainian dancers in order to pass on his love for Ukrainian Dance and keep the tradition alive in Alberta. He started his dance career at St. Basil’s School of Ukrainian Dance, and has since danced in the Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and, currently, the Volya Ukrainian Dance Ensemble. His past teaching experiences involve teaching at the Cheremosh School of Ukrainian Dance, Verkhovyna School of Ukrainian Dance, and Trembita Art School. Jordan is thrilled to now be a part of the St. Basil’s School of Dance.


Jordan is an active dancer and performer. He continues to attend a variety of workshops and classes offered to enhance his personal development and instructional support and training. As a teacher with the Edmonton Public School Division, Jordan uses his skills to build community and pass on his extensive ballet and Ukrainian folk dance language and technique to our athletes.

Victoria has been dancing with ULAS forever, most recently with our professional group Kupalo. Five years ago, she started assisting with the large numbers of students in our junior classes. It’s a pleasure to be in her warm presence. Since she’s been instructing with us, she has also completed her masters in Ukrainian Language and Culture at the University of Alberta and speaks Ukrainian with our athletes and their families.
