New York Trip

Red Boots on Broadway! Yavir takes a bite out of the Big Apple!
The Yavir Ensemble returned from a fabulous trip to NYC and the St George’s Ukrainian Street Festival in Manhattan. Our Dancers received many compliments on their performances, their costumes and their professionalism. During our time at the festival we were invited to perform at two other festivals in the area! Our dancers were wonderful ambassadors for Yavir, St. Demetrius Church and Canada. You made us all very proud!
Besides performing at the festival Yavir saw the major sites of NYC on an incredible city tour, was serenaded by the talented singing waiters and waitresses at the famous Ellen’s Stardust Diner as well as delighting onlookers with some impromptu Ukrainian Dancing in Times Square.
Thanks to our Yavir groupies, the Festos, Kunyckyj and Snihura families, that came along on the trip and cheered us on.
A special thanks to our chaperone Dmytro Prokopenko that endured hours of young ladies giggling on the bus and kept everyone safe and sound!
