Yavir Ukraine Tour 2008!

Yavir Ensemble Dancers are embarking on their Ukraine Tour 2008 on August 4th. Their adventure includes three dance workshops, at least four concerts, a special visit to Dzeherlo Orphanage to meet the children, and sightseeing throughout Western Ukraine. They'll participate in dance Workshops in Kolomyia, Khmelnytsky and Kyiv, while concerts are scheduled for Volochysk (Aug 14), Ternopil (Aug 17), Lutsk (Aug 18), and Kyiv (Aug 23). After working hard at fundraising for both the tour and for the orphanage, and practising for their concerts, the dancers are ready to see where their ancestors came from - many for the first time. Most of the dancers are third, fourth and fifth generation Canadians who continue to take pride in their heritage. Bon voyage Yavir! Registration for the 2008-9 dance season will take place on Sept. 8,9,10,11 from 6-8 pm. See registration information for details.
