A Native Calgarian, Ms Lysia (Lee-sha)began her dance journey at age 3 and over time layered her dance dimensions with tap, jazz, musical theatre, Ukrainian dance, and modern.  

Her professional career started at the age of 12 in the Young Canadians Dinner Theatre production of "Annie".  Her love for the stage brought her to the position of Principal Dancer and Soloist with Calgary's "Suzirya Ukrainian Dance Theatre" with whom she has performed for many audiences locally and around the world.  As a choreographer, Ms Lysia's work has been awarded for it's artistry and her dancers are often identified as having a strong foundational technique.  She strives to bring out the best in each dancer individually, while building the strength both physically and mentally, and to have an understanding of how their body needs to move to accomplish their dance goals.
