          The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is delighted to welcome Toronto’s Premier Ukrainian Dance Company Desna back to Yonkers! They will perform at 7:30 pm, Saturday, August 17th at Untermyer Park, 945 North Broadway in Yonkers.

The Company has dazzled audiences throughout Canada, the US and beyond with their wide repertoire of Ukrainian dance. They present technically demanding and exhilarating dances, accented by exquisite costumes and diverse music, and are a true celebration of movement and dance.

This celebration of international music will be another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council program under the stars!

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council  presents free performances and events for its 44th season of World Fest 2019 series every Saturday evening through September 7 on the Great Lawn at Untermyer Park.   The Untermyer Performing Arts Council itself is an all-volunteer group that brings diverse, professional programs to the people of Yonkers, Westchester and beyond.

This program, done in cooperation with Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation, was made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government and the City of Yonkers.  The Empire City Casino, Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins, Senator Shelley Mayer and our many generous supporters provided additional support for this program.
