Ukrainian Dance Ensembles Canada's Veselka (Veselka Series #1) by 

In 1983, few expected that a group of friends learning to dance for exercise and fun, would be the beginning of one of Canada’s many prized Ukrainian dance ensembles. Slowly but surely, each year passed with new skills gained, an increase in dancers, and a special spirit building. Veselka was beginning to take shape. Twenty-four years later, this spirit has endured as countless audiences have since raved over Veselka’s character, humor, and unique style of presenting Ukrainian traditions through dance and song.
The Veselka dance group has performed at numerous functions ranging from weddings and celebrations to festivals and special events. While most performances have been in the home province of Alberta, Veselka has toured across Canada, dancing at festivals in Dauphin, Montreal and Ottawa.

    What wonderful color costumes. Really nice shot Chuck.

  • Thanks Donna, The retired member of this dance group I was setting next to told me they had just received their new costumes from the Ukrainian and this was the first time they had danced in them. If you go to their website, I sent you, you can see how much prettier these are… ☺~Chuck

    As someone who’s done it professionally for almost half of my life at one of the most famous groups in Ukraine, I can really appreciate this!! :) I know a lot of people who left for Canada to work at these groups.
    Brings back the best memories!
