Message from the 2013 Festival Coordinators

The Ukrainian Cheremosh Society is excited to invite you to the 29th annual Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Festival! The Festival will take place at The Arden Theatre, located at 5 St. Anne Street in St. Albert, Alberta.

The dates for this year’s Festival are Thursday, May 9 to Sunday, May 12, 2013.

We hope to hear from you soon and communicate with you throughout the year and can’t wait to spend the second weekend of May surrounded by the vibrancy of young dancers and Ukrainian Dance! We are always eager to accept new participants from all over Canada and are very happy to answer any questions you have about the festival, accommodations, etc.
Registration forms and festival rules can be found at this website. Alternatively, we would be more than happy to mail these to you if you would like; please send us an email if you’d like hard copies of these documents.

This year there will be an early-bird draw for those schools that register before Friday, February 1, 2013. The final deadline for entry submission is Friday, February 15, 2013. A draft copy of the Festival program will be forwarded to all participating schools in March.
Our committee, composed of current Cheremosh dancers, is excited to continue the tradition of the Cheremosh Dance Festival! We are always open to comments and want to ensure the dance festival is a rewarding and educational experience for your young dancers! If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact us at
We hope to see you in May!
