Performing: Opening Ceremony & Cultural Showcase
Ukrainian dance has always been a vital part of the culture and heritage her in Vegreville. For decades there have been two prominent Ukrainian Dance organizations providing high quality performances during local festivals and Alberta and other Provincial Ukrainian Dance competitions.
In the summer of 2018, the Vegreville School of Ukrainian Dancing – Promin Dancers, Sopilka School of Ukrainian Dance Society and the Sopilka Ukrainian Ensemble Society, amalgamated to form the Vegreville Academy of Ukrainian Dance Association.
Named SVITLO, (pronounced Sveet-low), our goals are to teach, preserve and promote the heritage and culture of Ukrainian Dance. Svitlo has 61 dancers forming 6 dance groups.
