Volya, meaning "freedom", encompasses the unified spirit of the 45 ensemble dancers. Many members having studied in Ukraine, wanted to develop a similar style of dance within Canada. A strict adherence to training is a philosophical belief still maintained under the artistic direction of Zhenia Bahri, a former professional dancer and director from Ukraine. Over the years many dancers have entered Volya's studios with the same goal in mind - to dance for the love of dance.
