John Krsul, Jr. presents Pokagon Grant to Southold

Kohn Krsul, Jr., Interim Executive Director of The Pokagon Fund, stopped by Southold's Summer Intensive on June 17 to present a check to Calin Radulescu, artistic director, and Diana Green, director of operations. Southold Dance Theater is grateful for our partnership with The Pokagon Fund. The generosity of this fund allows Southold to share the magic of the Nutcracker with the Harbor Country Community. 




Southold Dancer, Paul Zusi, was awarded 1st place in the Senior Men’s Classical category and 3rd place in the Senior Men’s Contemporary category at the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) semi-finals in Indianapolis. Paul was invited to attend the final round of competition in New York, one of 550 dancers that were selected from a total field of 12,000. At the Finals competition, there is a very important aspect of scholarships and contract offers from professional companies around the country and the world. Several companies were very interested in Paul.  He was offered the following opportunities: a Studio Company contract with Sarasota Ballet, a Studio Company contract with Alberta Ballet (Canada), a full tuition scholarship trainee position with the San Francisco Ballet, Boston Ballet, Tulsa Ballet, Colorado Ballet, Ballet West and Orlando Ballet. Paul will spent the summer dancing at Boston Ballet’s Summer Intensive and was promoted to Boston Ballet 2.

Southold is very proud of Paul Zusi’s accomplishments and we wish him well as he pursues his dream as a professional dancer.
