After a successful summer sing-along program with Jerry Jumba, we thought you
would enjoy learning Rusyn dances to the tunes of his wonderful accordion and
Bob Bartko’s guitar.
On Jul 16ththe C-RS National, in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Chapter, will
be hosting a summer dance at the Cultural Center in Munhall. Admission to this,
our first zabava, will be $5.00 per person. With your suppport, we hope that
this will be the first of many. We will be delighted to see you there.
We are pleased to announce that the mayor of Presov,Slovakia, and his wife will
also be attending this dance. Presov is Pittsburgh’s sister city. John
Righetti and I first met Mayor Hagyari at a Rusyn masquerade ball in February of
2009. That evening he mentioned a possible trip to Pittsburgh. Naturally we
invited him to come and tour our center. We are very pleased that he did
remember and are looking forward to his visit.
For those eager to learn authentic Rusyn dance step, Dean Poloka will
offer demonstrations. You will also have the opportunity to practice
the steps before going on the floor.
Dean started his career with Slavjane in 1976 and was a member of the
dance troupe for 13 years. He won a Duquesne University
Tamburitzans scholarship in 1989. He has
instructed and performed for several Junior Tamburitzan groups and the
International Folk Theater (PIFT). With grants from the Carpatho-
Rusyn Society and Slavjane, Dean has studied traditional
Carpatho-Rusyn dance styling and choreography with the well
known ensembles Šarišan, PUĽS,
Dúbrava, and Folklórny Subor
Šariš. He is presently director and choreographer of Slavjane.
So please come and dance with us on July 16th. This could be a great
opportunity to show Dean's Slavjane youngsters that real fun begins after high
