It began in 1995 when Sam and Regina Sukovadi moved to Springfield and found no folk dance at all. They had to start and promote their own group.

Doctor Bernelli, then Springfield University’s president, was bent on promoting the University to international students, so he was more than accommodating. He made the campus dance studio available weekly; reserved space in the campus newspaper for their promotion; and persuaded Doctor Horowitz of the Business School to coach that promotion. Doctor Bernelli demanded production. The Sukovadis were hard-pressed to keep up.

Yet Bernelli’s demands were just what the group needed. Students, city news media, and local ethnic groups jumped on the band wagon. Within one year, the group was performing almost statewide. and the generous alumni saw the group as a means of preserving ethnic traditions.

The following year a work scholarship agreement was made with the University. It was then that the group adopted the name Fantasy Dancers and took off. Today the Fantasy Dancers perform coast to coast and are recognized as one of the top troupes in the nation.
