Artistic Director leaves on a high note!

Paul Olijnyk, our current Artistic Director, will be leaving us at the end of this dance season to pursue a Masters Degree in Folk Dance at the University of Alberta Graduate Program in Ukrainian Folklore. We wholeheartedly congratulate Paul on his acceptance to this prestigious program, while lamenting his departure from our school. Paul’s resignation letter states:

My decision to accept has been made with much personal deliberation and has not been an easy one…Over the past four dance seasons I have invested much of myself into the school, and in turn, Yavir has given much back to me. The work has been extremely rewarding and could not have been successful without the backing of Fr. John, the St. Demetrius Community, the parent committee, and volunteers.

All the best in your studies, Paul!
