The Fundamentals of Ukrainian Dance classes teach basic skills and steps to children from four to sixteen, as set out in the dance syllabus created by Tryzub School's first Artistic Director, Mrs. Anna Kanevets. The school year is split into two semesters with Semester One running from September to December and Semester Two running from January to May. The year concludes with a concert showcasing the dances learned during the year.

Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Ballet is an international syllabus based ballet instruction program containing set exercises and guidelines to develop classical ballet technique. The program starts with basic skills and progresses to a pre-professional understanding of ballet.

Junior Tryzub provides the opportunity for dancers 12 to 18 to increase their level of technical ability and develop the skills and passion that are Tryzub. They are the highest level of the Tryzub School of Ukrainian Dance. Junior Tryzub performs at various events to increase their exposure in the Calgary community.

The Tryzub Adult Class is for those wanting to begin, renew, or continue a love for Ukrainian dance.  Members are able to maintain their skills, enjoy regular exercise, and build friendships in a recreational environment. The Tryzub Adult Class rehearses weekly on Thursday evenings for two hours and offers the opportunity to perform at various community events.
