We are continually impressed by Stephen's dedication to the St. Basil's School of Dance. He is joyful and attentive to each student and assists them in reaching their full potential each year. A wonderful dancer himself, Stephen teaches the children to have fun while demonstrating the beauty and cultural significance of Ukrainian Dance. We are very grateful for his time and talents.
