We are pleased to announce that planning is currently underway for PFE Dance Showcase 2021. The festival is scheduled to take place April 22-25, 2021.
We are making every effort to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all of our participants, attendees, volunteers and adjudicators in light of the current COVID-19 concerns. As such, we are delaying the opening of registration in an effort to ensure that PFE Dance Showcase will be in compliance with all local health authority mandates.
Check back in December for our updated rules, regulations, policies, and procedures for PFE Dance Showcase 2021!
PFE Dance Showcase is an annual Ukrainian dance competition organized and hosted by Pavlychenko Folklorique Ensemble. Established in 2004, with the intention of re-establishing a competition located in Saskatoon, Showcase has now become a highly anticipated annual event.
This festival hosts dance groups from across the nation and is open to competitors from every province. Spanning over a four-day period, the competition portion is unique in having both a male and female adjudicator evaluate each medium and large group dance. In 2019, we enjoyed a record number of entries (over 550) with more than 900 dancers participating throughout the weekend.
The event also includes a dance showcase performance. The showcase presents dances of the adjudicator’s choice and allows dancers an additional opportunity to perform non-competitively. The show is free and is open for anyone to attend and enjoy. The showcase performance is typically held on Saturday evening and will be scheduled in accordance with the amount and type of entries received.
PFE Dance Showcase hopes to encourage a positive dancing atmosphere promoting interactions and friendships with other dancers. We invite you to come and join us to enjoy some terrific dancing while experiencing this wonderful aspect of Ukrainian culture!
