The Zorya Ukrainian Dance Ensemble was comprised of 19 dancers for the 2006 - 2007 dance season. The group practices two evenings a week. We were very honored to have studied under the instruction of Jenya Bahri who came to Thunder Bay to conduct weekend workshops. During these workshops the Senior Ensemble learned new dances and worked on technique and character.

Members of the Ensemble not only dance but also teach the younger dancers in the Association. This year the Senior Ensemble performed at the following:
