Registration will be open by mid-July for the 2024/25 Dance Year

Keep an eye on those emails. We will let the previous families know as soon as it’s activated. We appreciate your patience. 

New this year is a low-impact class for all adults ages 18+. If you want an opportunity to dance but are worried about your hips or knees or previous injuries, talk to your doctor this summer and our instructors will choreograph a slightly slower no jumping or fast spins class for you or your loved ones to enjoy the exercise, the camaraderie, and especially the music of Ukrainian Dance!

3. UFEST 

Thank you to students in Vesna, Sontse, Kupalo and Zirka for representing our school at Ufest! Here is the park layout and parking info https://ufest.ca/plan/ take a look at the map - there are not great change room facilities so come dressed and taped ready to dance for 11:30, please be mindful it might take a while to find parking as we’re not first in the performance lineup this year.

Expo Centre SE Lot ($16.50/day)

Children will return to the stage for farewell gift and large school photo at the very end of the program.

Dance families of Viter and Kvitky (our two youngest groups) Sherri will meet you upstairs in the dance room after the final gift and photo so you can give her your child’s costume and dance bag. She will return your costume cheque at this time. 

Dance families of Vesna, Sontse, and Zirka, you will not dance the upcoming Wednesday, instead we will see you Tuesday May 21 or Wednesday May 22 at your regular scheduled dance time, to prep for UFEST on Saturday, May 25 at 12:30PM (arrive 11:30AM fully dressed and ready to dance). Kupalo, please refer to Cindy for specific information.

Two of our instructors, Victoria and Jordan, are available to teach solos or duets if any dancers are interested. These are generally choreographed for the intention of performing at dance festivals, and perhaps at our year-end concert. There are additional costs that are the responsibility of the dancer's family; instruction fee (price is set by the instructor), entrance fees at dance festivals, costume deposit (if using an additional club costume from St. Basil’s)
