2016 Ukrainian Festival on Bloor

Yavir dance school excites audiences at the Bloor Street Ukrainian Festival
Although September 17 was grey and rainy, the large audience at the Bloor Ukrainian Festival who braved the weather were treated to a very energetic and colourful performance by the Yavir Ensemble. Yavir performed two upbeat dances the Hutsul suite and the very popular “Volynska Polka” (audience favorite), on the mainstage, on the evening of Saturday September 17, 2016. There were many positive comments from the audience about Yavir’s poise and performance. Congratulations Yavir to a Job well done!
And on Sunday, the last day of Festival, Veeterets and Karpaty Ensembles represented the Yavir School of Dance at the youth Showcase at the Bloor Street Festival. Both groups shone on stage performing exceptionally well with confidence and poise. Karapty’s “Hopachok” was truly a hit as the audience enjoyed the acrobatics and graceful turns of our soloists. Veeterets’s quick paced and energetic “Hutsul” dance brought much applause from the large audience. We are so proud of all of our young dancers who are blossoming to wonderful entertainers.
