DIVISIONAL /TIER ENTRIES
Explanation of V.U.D.F's Entry Structure
We have introduced the division/tier structure to reflect the variety and calibre of Ukrainian dance programs currently in existence. For example, some dancers participate in classes held once a week for about 1 hour in length, while others may dance in more intensive programs that involve an audition process. Acceptance into audition programs is dependant upon a predetermined level of dance ability/acheivement independantly set by the dance school/club/organization or association.
Dancers accepted into these programs may dance upward of 3 hours a week and may have additional requirements such as mandatory co-requisite ballet classes. Differences in dance programs and opportunities, has prompted the Veeteretz to be the first festival to create a division/tier entry structure in the name of fairness. In doing so, dancers are then adjudicated with and compared to those with similar dance training and experience.
Should instructors choose to do so, as a "registration" division group, you have the option to have your dancers participate at the "pre-requisite" division should you truly feel this is in your best interests.
Our festival was established to meet the needs of all Ukrainian dancing schools, regardless of intensity of training, and to annually join together to celebrate our culture through dance.
