Greece is one of the few places in the world where folk dance is still kept alive. It’s a vivid expression of human feeling and our everyday life! The Greeks dance at religious festivals, weddings, baptisms and other celebratory ceremonies. Almost every dance has a story to tell. Traditional dances continue to be passed on from generation to generation to maintain help people maintain their national identity.

The purpose of the dance program is to bring our community together in Orthodox Christian fellowship and to afford them the opportunity to live, learn, and experience the Hellenic culture through dance. We also strive to grow together in spirit and strength, always to bring out the best in each participant. This mission includes:

  • To praise God through song and dance as stated in Psalms 150: “Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!”

  • To develop an awareness and appreciation for the Orthodox faith, as well as the Hellenic culture and its traditions.

  • To inspire our participants about the Greek Heritage through traditional dance and song.

  • To promote a feeling of unity, family, and community in our youth.

  • To teach our participants the values of teamwork and commitment.
