Thanks to the Edmonton School of Ukrainian Dance, I had the chance to meet some great people, make lots of friends and travel to exciting places for dance competitions. So much fun!

"no annual fundraising"
"I appreciate there is no annual fundraising to do, not even for travel costs or the dance outfits. We have to do so much of that through my son's school and I have no time for it."
