For Vitalii Luzan, dancing The Nutcracker Prince in his adopted country of Canada is a thrill.
The 25-year-old dance star from Mykolaiv left Ukraine in mid-January to dance on tour in Europe.
“At the end of the tour, I flew to Paris to see friends and have a vacation. I was in France when war broke out in my country.”
There was no way for Luzan to get back home.
“I could not sleep knowing that my family was on the line of contact. My mother saw flying missiles and Russian helicopters. With no way to get home, I went to Poland where it was possible to live cheaply.” … Presently living in Morriston, near Guelph, Luzan says he is being helped by some kind people.
