Introducing NEW company dancer - Bridget
When I was about 5 years old, my parents decided that instead of being with their adorable son every Tuesday night, they would enroll me into a Ukrainian dancing group called Verchovyna. What a fantastic idea that was. For the next 13 years, my Tuesday nights consisted of stuffing my face with dim sims from the Chinese shop next door, dancing and then watching survivor. This created lasting friendships with a crazy bunch of people, allowed me to develop my fitness levels and provided me with wild memories.
I started Ukrainian dancing, I think, when I was about halfway through primary school. It was something I had been wanting to do for a while. I had a few older cousins who I got to see performing at all these concerts with their colourful costumes to all this beautiful music, I had been nagging my parents for some time to let me start before I actually did.
