This is my sec­ond year per­form­ing at the Ukrainian Fes­ti­val with Desna. How­ever, as a child and teenager, I per­formed, vol­un­teered and at­tended reg­u­larly. She taught me how to pinch per­o­gies — you don't want them open­ing up and the in­sides com­ing out. And she taught me how to make de­li­cious potato pan­cakes! It’s great to see our cul­ture and her­itage pre­served and cel­e­brated. I also love run­ning into old friends I met grow­ing up in the Ukrainian com­mu­nity. We’ll be danc­ing on the main stage at the fes­ti­val, and we per­form at cul­tural fes­ti­vals around the GTA and be­yond. Fes­ti­val: Sept. 15 - 17 on Bloor Street W.
