Cheremosh Artistic Director Celebrates 20th Anniversary


On June 2nd 2011, Cheremosh dancers, alumni, society members, board members, former board members, past presidents and supporters gathered at the Chateau Louis Conference Centre to honour Mykola Kanevets 20th year as the Artistic Director of Cheremosh. The evening was emceed by Cheremosh Alumnus Shawn Owchar. Past-president Ernie Bayrock shared the story of hiring Mykola with past-presidents Darryl Currie, Brenda Hawrysh-Griffiths, Allison Scott and Jason Golinowski touching base on the major productions that have occurred under Mykola’s direction. Also in attendance were Mykola’s family as well as Cheremosh founder, Chester Kuc. It was an evening to show our appreciation for the excellence that Mykola has brought to the Ukrainian Cheremosh Society, and to recognize his superior ability as a choreographer, ballet master and artistic director. His influence is felt right through the School of Dance to the Ukrainian Cheremosh Dance Company. Thank-you Mykola; as was repeated throughout the evening, may we share 20 more years with you!
