The Ukrainian Folk Ballet of the Twin Cities was founded in Minneapolis in 1934 under the direction of Vasile Avramenko. The aims of the group were to organize Ukrainian youth, promote Ukrainian arts and culture, especially the national dances, and to promote the Ukrainian cultural heritage among Americans. Its membership consisted of young people from the parish of St. Michael's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Minneapolis and included many non-Ukainians over the years. The group published a newsletter, the "Ukadet" for many years. A six-bound-volume set of "Ukadet" (1941-1953) came with the collection. (The IHRC holds a near complete set for 1941-1973)
