A VSB Alumni - Deeyana trained in her hometown Vegreville, since the age of three, practicing Ukrainian dance, hip-hop, jazz, ballet, and contemporary. During her dance school years she received numerous trophies, awards, and scholarships. At the age of nine, Deeyana was awarded the “most outstanding female dancer” through out a whole Ukrainian Dance festival. Deeyana is now attending MacEwan University in the Acupuncture program following her certification of becoming a 2200 hour trained Massage Therapist. She currently trains with the Viter Ukrainian Dancers and Folk Choir and Drea Lee Dance Company. Dance has taken Deeyana to Quebec, Florida (Disneyworld), Ukraine, and all over Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba for performing opportunities. She has attended the 3rd Street Beat Bootcamp, the Triple Threat Convention, and Miss Brette’s Motives Dance and Fitness Winter Intensive. This past summer Deeyana travelled to Las Vegas where she performed at the event “Tuesday Night Blend”, sharing the stage with ABDC’s “A Team”. She also took workshops with Kishema Pendu and Matthew Guerroro of Cirque de Soliel at The Rock Centre of Dance. With Viter, Deeyana also toured five cities in Ukraine performing sold out shows and taking cultural dance workshops from popular choreographers enriching her knowledge of the Ukrainian dance culture. Deeyana has taught hip-hop classes for VSB since 2014, her dances have won many choreography and other awards. This past year she had taught beginner hip-hop classes for Puddle of Mud Productions. Dance has always been a big part of Deeyana’s life, and she is excited to share her love and passion for dance with the dancers of VSB.
