Greece is one of the few countries in the world where folk dances are as alive today as they were in ancient times. Dance has always played an important role in the life of a Greek. It is an expression of human feelings and everyday life.
The Greeks dance at religious festivals, ceremonies; they dance to ensure fertility; to celebrate victories; they dance at weddings; to overcome depression and to cure physical illness. Almost every dance has a story to tell.
The Dancers have researched and amassed a repertoire of over 30 dances, songs and traditions from virtually every part of the Hellenic World. Aside from our Cathedral’s Hellenic Festival our dancers have Performed by a Special invitation at the NATO Azalea Festival, regional Folk Dance competitions, various school, cultural, civic, and social events like Festevents. Our children have also brightened the day for many at local assisted living communities.
