Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dancers

Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dance Society (CVUDS) was founded in 1983 by a group of parents interested in preserving Ukrainian culture for their children through dance. The CVUDS was formed a year later as a non-profit society.

The CVUDS endeavours to preserve the "art" of Ukrainian folk dance and the Ukrainian culture. The society also strives to provide students with the opportunity to develop an appreciation for Ukrainian dance and attain the highest personal level of achievement possible.

Studia Shumka Ukrainian Dance

As part of its 30th Anniversary season, the Shumka School of Dance (SSD) established Studia Shumka in the Fall of 2018. This junior performing ensemble acts as a bridging program between the School and the professional Shumka company.

These emerging young artists train over ten hours per week in Ukrainian, character, ballet and contemporary dance, and have built a repertoire for performances throughout the community. On occasion they train, rehearse and perform with the professional Shumka dance company, in anticipation of their evolution into the next step of the Shumka Family.

Camrose Academy of Dance

The Camrose Academy of Dance is a non-profit Society, which is administered through a volunteer Board of Directors and a paid Office Manager. It has been operating since 1987.

The studios are located at the Chuck McLean Arts Centre with raised floors, mirrors, bars, change rooms and lobby area for parents and students.

The Academy offers classes in Tap, Jazz. Vagonova Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Musical Theatre and Acro. Classes are taught by highly qualified teaching staff. Students take part in community performances, competitions, festivals and a Year-End show. Camrose Academy of Dance offers classes from pre-school to advanced students.

Ballet Camrose

Ballet Camrose offers highly technical training, competition experience, and a family-oriented atmosphere. To offer the highest quality of dance training, all of our staff are fully certified and have the experience to provide high caliber classes. At Ballet Camrose, we offer provincial examinations in our junior grades ballet classes, as well as international Cecchetti ballet examinations for our grades and major grades classes. In addition, we offer provincial examinations in the Al Gilbert tap syllabus and provincial examinations in our comprehensive jazz syllabus.

At Ballet Camrose, we strive to create well rounded, multi-faceted dancers by offering examinations, as well as competition experience. We attend four competitions each year which all provide a positive, constructive atmosphere and opportunity to grow studio pride.

We value a positive learning atmosphere at our studio where the student is able to learn at their own pace and to the best of their personal ability. We aim to provide our students with the necessary skills and experience to train in many different forms of dance, to create positive self-confidence and a wide skill set for future opportunities.
