Taras Shevchenko Foundation Grant Supports Yavir Faculty Training

Congratulations to all dancers on a wonderful 47th Annual Concert! Photographs can be viewed and ordered at Pickart Photography along with DVDs.
The Yavir School of Ukrainian Dance is extremely pleased to have received a grant from the Taras Shevchenko Foundation for training workshops and certification of Yavir instructors in the Syllabus for Ukrainian Dance; and choreography workshops with guest choreographers for instructors and students. We welcomed Roman Lewkowicz, artistic director of the Obrij Ensemble in New York, and a specialist in dances of Zakarpattja after having studied in the region. Yavir participated in a workshop March 7-8, 2009. Plans are underway for other workshops in the 2009/10 dance season! Many thanks to the Taras Shevchenko Foundation for this very generous grant.
