Tom Masterson is the founder and director of Postoley Dance Ensemble, a performing ethnic dance company specializing in the dance and culture of Ukraine, Poland and eastern Europe. He was born and raised in Québec, Canada in a bilingual environment. He currently lives in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Professor Masterson studied traditional ethnic dance, choreography and performance with several world-renowned companies, including the Bukovinian and Virsky ensembles in Ukraine, and the Marie Curie Skodlowska University Institute for Choreography in Lublin, Poland. Masterson is a truly impressive master teacher. Workshops include dances appropriate for all levels of experience. Some of his favorite dances include "Bukovinian Spring" arranged to the world-famous "Bukovinian Melodies" music, a gypsy dance appropriately titled "Good Luck" from Romania, and a beautiful Carpatho-Rus' dance from Ushorod on the Ukrainian-Slovak border.
