A traditional Ukrainian troupe dance at the start of the draw for the Euro 2012 football championships at the National Palace of Arts in Kyiv on December 2, 2011.

Fans of traditional eastern European dance will have a chance to catch the world-renowned Vohon Ukrainian Dance Ensemble at the Simon Star Cabaret in Phuket this afternoon, July 23.
