Barvinok is no ordinary dance school. We believe dance is meant to be inclusive and for the entire community. We rely on the generous time contributions of our dancers’ family members, who volunteer at various events and activities.

Volunteers help keep our tuition fees accessible and also build and strengthen our Calgary Ukrainian dance community by working together. Our parent volunteers are the backbone of our dance society and are very involved.

Urgent: Southern Alberta Ukrainian Dance Festival (SAUDF) – Parent Volunteers Needed

Please take a minute to sign up for a SAUDF volunteer position HERE.

33 volunteers are essential for the facilitation of the festival in various ways.

We are needing volunteers to work in our concession booth selling snacks and medal lanyards, theatre door monitors, medal presenters, gym monitors, stair monitors, admission desk workers and floaters.

Asking family and friends to volunteer at SAUDF can be an enjoyable way to involve your support network in a fun activity! It’s also a great way for responsible youth to build volunteer experience for future work experience and post-secondary scholarships.
