The Veeteretz School of Ukrainian Dance

The character of the Veeteretz School of Ukrainian Dance is determined by the dance standards of excellence the instructors and dancers set for themselves.

"Ukrainian dancing has been a wonderful experience for me. Veeteretz is the best Ukrainian Dance group in Edmonton and area. It has instructors that teach you things and correct you when you need correcting. Costumes are beautiful! They actually come from the Ukraine. Veeteretz goes to amazing places for competitions. In 2012, a few groups went to Lloydminster. Competitions are fair and fun! At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what color medal you get. All that matters is that you have fun, and at Veeteretz I have alot of fun."
Ashley - Senior Mixed Dancer
