CHEREMOSH UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE

Friday: Ukrainian dance has a long history in the Twin Cities, dating to 1934, when founding members of Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Ensemble performed in the old Shubert Theater, now the Goodale Theater in the Cowles Center. With “Spirit of Ukraine,” the troupe returns to an important site in its long history. Folk dances from various regions including Transcarpathia and Hutzulshchyna will be represented on a program that strives to capture cultural authenticity through costumes, music and movement. The ensemble boasts 60 members, so expect the big stage to be filled with a lively and colorful performance. (7 p.m. Fri., $16-$24, The Cowles Center, 528 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls., 612-206-3600, www.thecowlescenter.org.)
