Pavley-Oukrainsky Ballet

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone know from what year to what year this company was active (based in Chicago). Andreas Pavley died in 1931 and Oukrainsky in 1972, and they did have a school that might have outlived the company, but I needed to know the dates for the company. All help appreciated!
