“We couldn’t be more grateful to share this ride with everyone and are so appreciative to have so many beautiful souls supporting us and my dream. Work hard, follow your dreams, and don’t stop when it gets tough, it just makes the victory so much sweeter,” said Barabash.

She said since the conception of the dance company in 2015 she has exceeded all her expectations.

Barabash continues to grow the business and offer new programs.

“We provide so much more than just dance lessons. We work with each student on a one-to-one basis and get to known that student’s needs. We firmly believe in giving back to the community and the community has supported the company. The personal level that we connect with each student is showcased in our passion, morals, and values that are passed down to our students,” said Barabash.

Barabash is the daughter of Lawrence and Shelly Barabash of Preeceville and grand-daughter of Phyllis Kozun of Canora.

“At Bravo Dance Company, we not only aim to provide an elite dance experience, but also to produce great people along the way, a supportive and encouraging environment, and limitless opportunities for our dancers,” she said. “We are proud to offer fantastic instructors, fulfilling classes, and excellent customer service,” concluded Barabash.
