Since 2007 the Shaker Misto Ukrainian Dancers have been entertaining groups around the valley and winning accolades and medals in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The aim of the adult group is to learn new dances from differnet regions of the Ukraine, each of which require intricate costumes.

Their most recent goal was to acquire costumes for a dance from the Bukovynia region, and with financial support from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley, they are delighted with the beautifully decorated tops and skirts that now enhance their performances.
