Favorite Memory

My students had the pleasure of entertaining at many functions throughout the City of Edmonton, the Province of Alberta, in Yellowknife, N.W.T., as well as Los Angeles, California.  Some of the students participated with other Organizations such as Choirs, Stage Productions and Parades.  Many of my students have moved on to larger dance groups such as Shumka, Cheremosh, Vohon, etc.  I thoroughly enjoyed my 42 years of teaching Ukrainian Dancing.  Throughout those years there were many happy memories!
