Our goal is to bring Orthodox families together through dance, music and fellowship to perpetuate our rich Hellenic Orthodox tradition.
Our Hellenic Dance Festival, based on the vision and dream of His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios, began in 2000. Traveling from city to city throughout our Metropolis, the Hellenic Dance Festival has grown into a true family event. Held on the MLK Jr. weekend, it allows for participants to travel and join together as brothers and sisters in Christ. Our religion, our Greek language, and our culture help us maintain our identity as Hellenes. The need for our communities to perpetuate our culture, along with the philosophy of ancient Greece and the Olympic spirit of "a healthy mind in a healthy body" were instrumental in the vision by His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios to establish this Hellenic Dance Festival for the youth and families of our Metropolis.
We strive to:
- Develop awareness and appreciation for our Orthodox Tradition and Hellenic culture through dance and music
- Inspire youth and young adults to enhance their experience and love for the Orthodox Church and Hellenic culture
