The Kvitka Ukrainian Dancers will liven up Red Deer’s First Friday art gallery openings on April 6.

Young dancers, age 10 to 12, will kick up their heels to perform dances from different regions of Ukraine from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium in the Red Deer Public Library. In the connecting Kiwanis Gallery, the Red Deer Arts Council is presenting the group show, My Kid Could Do That until April 22.
