Petur has taught Bulgarian dance extensively since coming to this country five years ago. He works as a dance teacher in a Magnet school in San Jose. For the past two year's his father, Giorgi, has joined him in giving joint workshops at the Croatian American Cultural Center and the East European Folklife Center.
