International Music and Dance to Begin the New Year


We’ve been hearing for much of the year about Russia and Ukraine, but New Year’s Eve brings an opportunity to bring those, and other cultures, to life in Southwest Houston tomorrow through music, song and dance entertainment.

Oksana Chernyuk is the artistic director of the Sunrise International Dance Company on Houston’s west side, and is presenting for the first time ever a “New Year’s Eve Celebration with Snow Queen,” at the Chateau Crystale, 2517 S. Gessner Rd. at the corner of Westheimer. An international buffet is included in the ticket price, however alcohol will not be sold, so you’ll have to bring your own bubbly or adult beverage of choice. Mostly, the night will be about music and dance.

“There will be Russian dance, Ukrainian, Indian, contemporary, gymnastics, then Flamenco, which is Spanish,” says Oksana. She has been dancing professional for 35 years across the globe, now teaching dance at the Sunrise Dance Company on Dairy Ashford.

After a year in which news has been dominated by foreign lands, this may be an interesting way to welcome in a new year.

“We hope we’re going to finish our dance show right at 12 am, and there’s going to be a Russian Santa and a American one coming, and there’s going to be a lot of international music,” she adds.

Tickets are $135 if purchased as singles. There is a discount for a table of ten.
