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 the Ukrainian culture!
In 2020, the festival will be held from Thursday, April 23rd to Sunday, April 26th at Prairieland Park, Hall A, Saskatoon. We look forward to having you join us for another exciting time!
