Do you love Ukrainian dancing, exciting opportunities, and making lifelong friends? If you said yes to all 3, you’d be a perfect fit with PFE!

PFE hosts auditions in the spring and fall each year. We are excited to announce that spring auditions will be held on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 7:00 pm.

To become a part of Pavlychenko Folklorique Ensemble's performing cast, dancers must be a minimum of 16 years old and have previous dance experience. A background in a variety of genres is beneficial! PFE cast members attend rehearsals three times per week and have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of performances throughout the year. 

PFE also offers a bridging (apprentice) program for dancers who are not quite ready to be full cast members. Bridgers have the opportunity to train and rehearse with PFE, expand their knowledge of Ukrainian dance techniques, learn the PFE repertoire, and meet fellow Ukrainian dance enthusiasts! 


Please note that dancers who will be turning 16 prior to September 1st are welcome to attend spring auditions, but will not be eligible to attend PFE rehearsals until the fall. This is applicable for both performing cast members and bridging students. 

This season's auditions will be offered both in-person at 407 Cumberland Ave in Saskatoon, as well as online. Please specify which you would prefer when registering.

To register, please fill out our registration form before May 14.  


See you there!
