What a wonderful day shared with friends and family, remembering the past and dreaming of what’s to come.
Verchovyna Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and other guests all performed wonderfully as well!
It was a great privilege today that the Senior and Elementary Verchovyna groups where able to honour Taras Shevchenko through Ukrainian dance, some 200 years later alongside with the rest of our Ukrainian community.
All the dance groups within Verchovyna performed at the Melbourne Ukrainian Youth Association 2014 Spring Concert. For some of our youngest of members, it was their first time performing on stage in front of an audience who greeted the Kinder group with great enthusiasm and loud applause.
We had the pleasure in performing alongside our Polish friends, from the Lowicz Polish Vocal-Dance Ensemble, at their annual Lowicz & Friends concert -Echoes of my Homeland. It was great to meet other dancers from the Serbian, Hungarian, Polish and Chinese communities.
Members of Verchovyna’s Elementary group greeted His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav, with a traditional Ukrainian “Pryvit” and the eldest dancers performed an uplifting dance, at a banquet held in his honour.
Verchovyna performed in Geelong on Sunday, 31st August 2014 as part of the program at a grand celebration marking Ukrainian Independence Day organised by the local Ukrainian Diaspora.
It was very humbling and an honour for Verchovyna Ukrainian Dance Ensemble to perform at Ukrainian Independence Day celebrations at Kalyna Care (Ukrainian Elderly Peoples Home) in Melbourne.
