LEHIGHTON, Pa. - The Ukrainian American Heritage Foundation of the Lower Anthracite Regions is proud to host its 12th annual folk dance workshop and camp on Monday, July 2, through Friday, July 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., daily here at the Ukrainian Homestead.

The camp will conclude with a finale performance on Saturday, July 7, at 7 p.m., followed by a dance in the Homestead ballroom.

The camp is open to children and young adults, age 5 and up, with classes for beginners and advanced dancers.

This year's camp features two guest instructors: David Woznak of the Kashtan School of Ukrainian Dance in Parma, Ohio and Andrij Dobriansky of the Syzokryli Ensemble of New York City. The additional guest instructor will allow for more focused instruction for each age group with specific emphasis on advanced instruction for experienced dancers.
