The Veeteretz Ukrainian Dance Festival (VUDF) was born out of the recognized need for an innovative festival experience for dancers. It is the first Alberta Ukrainian dance festival to:

• have separate adjudicators for groups and solos/duet entries allowing for focused expertise to share with dancers and the spectators;
• establish two divisions for entries – registration and audition – which affords equitable opportunities for success;
• offer acknowledgement awards for BEST CHOREOGRAPHY, MOST PROMISING and OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE through each adjudication session to recognize a greater number of training and performance efforts; and
• be hosted at a venue with practice space, ample and sizable change rooms, in addition to a state-of-the-art theatre facility.

The VUDF is proud to be recognized regionally as an event that builds deeper awareness of the Ukrainian heritage for participants as well as the public-at-large. Overwhelming support from the Ukrainian Dance Community recognizes a niche which had yet to be filled in the province.

Since its inception, the festival has focused on its Mission Statement: to provide aspiring Ukrainian dancers with a positive learning environment, and an intention to enhance dancers’ personal growth and to strive towards higher levels of achievement.
