“People want to be a part of something larger than themselves. They want to be part of something they’re really proud of, that they’ll fight for, sacrifice for, that they trust.” Howard Shultz, CEO, Starbucks
I believe that in a many cases successful business has a great personal story behind it. The reason for that is the passion behind the business, an excessive desire to fulfill dreams and make a change in people’s life. That is why when we received this assignment I thought about all the things I adore and love and that is how the idea of opening a Ukrainian Folk Dance School came to my mind. I used to attend Ukrainian traditional folk dance school on a regular basis when I was a child. When I turned 14, due to various peer influences and distractions, I decided to quit Ukrainian dance school and join a modern dance studio instead. During my recent conversation with my mother, I told her, that she should have never allowed me to quit folk dancing and forced me to attend the classes. I regret till date that decision. As the saying goes, often parents try to live their dreams through their children, I feel like I have started it already. I do not have my own children yet, but I already know that they will attend some dancing classes. Meanwhile, in my research paper I will dream about opening a Ukrainian Folk Dance School in Stamford, CT.
Mission for my company is to provide a caring and inspiring environment for young dancers in the Ukrainian community. Vision is to become a dance company in CT where youth will be encouraged and motivated to learn their own culture. Values we share are: commitment to the Ukrainian community and culture, exploring Ukrainian traditions by the history of its dance, and encouragement of growing generation to be proud of their ethnicity.
