The Ukrainian American Community Center (UACC) mission is to promote, preserve and share Ukrainian heritage, traditions and culture by bringing together Ukrainian Americans and the broader Twin Cities community. Through activities such as traditional folk dance, music and the arts we build community, instill ethnic pride, and contribute to the cultural diversity of Minnesota.
Providing a "Home" for Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Ensemble
Our most highly visible and popular cultural activity - in person dance practices of the Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Ensemble.
Cheremosh acts as our community's cultural ambassadors thru their many performances, including their Annual Spring Concert, Ukrainian Heritage Festival, Festival of Nations, the MN State Fair and even at the International Ukrainian Dance and Culture Festival in Lviv, Ukraine.
Cheremosh is comprised of 6 subgroups based on age and skill level, ranging in age from 4 years old to young adults. Their practices utilize every room at the Ukrainian Center. Cheremosh also uses storage space for hundreds of costumes and meeting rooms for administration.
It makes having a "Home of our Own" vital to preserving and sharing our dance heritage, our "Tansi".
The Ukrainian Center was founded in 1964 by Ukrainian immigrants who found a new life and homes in Northeast Minneapolis and formed a fraternal, community and cultural center to call their own.
