Greek Folk Dance

To all the dancers and parents, I have missed you. I missed the practice, the laughs, the socializing and the interaction. I hope all of you are well, healthy and safe and I am praying this pandemic will be behind us soon. Previous years at this time we were prepping up to start our dance practices but not this year. I had a long discussion with Fr. Nicholas and the decision is that we will not start dance practice in September as normal. In January we will reassess the situation and see what the next move will be. I am sure all of you cannot wait to see your friends and teammates and your church family. Be patient. Safety and health come first and then we can resume our practices again. Until then I wish and pray that all of you and your families stay healthy.

Our troupes are invited to perform throughout the year in various events such as schools, museums, nursing homes, private social events and festivals of neighboring communities. The instructors are invited often to demonstrate and instruct for schools and other social groups.


Dance Practice takes place at the cathedral every Monday night:

6:15 – 7:15 for Alpha (1st through 3rd grade)

6:15 – 7:15 for Doxa (4th through 7th grade)

6:15 – 7:15 for Neo Kyma (8th through 12th grade)

7:00 – 9:00 for Byantio (adults)

In May, because of the upcoming festival, practices double up to every Monday and Wednesday and we stop after the festival for the summer.
