This site in Ukrainian TASMANIA
On weekend of 3rd-5th March, CYM Melbourne Dance Ensemble Verchovyna travelled down to Tasmania to participate in the celebration of Hobart's newly-built Ukrainian Community Centre and Chapel. The major aims of the trip were to share the much-loved Ukrainian culture with our southern counterparts.
The day began with an official blessing of the centre, by Bishop Peter Stasiuk, followed by an opening mass for the centre.
After the liturgy Verchovyna performed in a celebratory concert along with choirs; Sokoly, CYM Melbourne choir Cheremosh and St Peter and Paulís Cathedral Choir. The Performance unmistakably received a wonderful response, bringing great joy to the audience.

Friday night marked the arrival of Verchovynaís spirited team in Hobart. Quickly settling into Quest Trinity apartments, it didnít take long for the dancers to discover Hobart. Beside a night lit waterfront we enjoyed a quick dinner and a few drinks. The long awaited weekend had begun.
The following morning, many rose early to enjoy the splendour of the Salamanca Markets. Our tour continued with Tasmaniaís renowned Cascade Brewery. Beer was tasted and cheese eaten, the afternoon was a peaceful success.
Its streets lined with sandstone buildings and quaint boutiques, Richmond, a Georgian village first explored in 1803, concluded the tour. After a short run through at the centre, Verchovynaís members relaxed for the evening, eager for Sundayís performance.

The opening of Tasmaniaís new Ukrainian Community Centre was a tremendous success. The various performances and rich display of Ukrainian culture inspired Ukrainianís young and old to uphold their Ukrainian heritage. Verchovyna feels privileged and grateful for the opportunity to take part and would like to thank Karpaty, CYOA and the CYM Uprava Melbourne for making it possible.
