Exciting weekend at Yavir

Yavir School of Ukrainian Dance was very busy last weekend December 12 - 13, 2015. On Saturday afternoon dancers from all the major Ukrainian ensembles converged on the Yavir studio to work on the very exciting joint Virsky Hopak and on Sunday, as part of the Yavir fundraising initiative, we ran Coffee Sunday at St. Demetrius Church. From early morning to 2 pm Yavir group dancers with a help from loyal supporters of Yavir the Foga, Filipowich and Cassie families made sure that parishioners and guests of St. Demetrius church could enjoy some fresh coffee & tea as well as tasty treats brought by dancers and volunteers. Later that afternoon our dancers from Karpaty ensemble took part in a rehearsal alongside dancers from Barvinok and Ukraina, of the joint Pryvit Dance for the Youth Festival of Ukrainian Dance on Feb 20th, 2016 at the Living Arts Centre. Later on Sunday in early evening the Yavir studio was buzzing as Yavir ensemble dancers were back at the studio practicing their energetic Hopak for Dec 20 St. Nicholas Concert.
