Greek dancing is a very old tradition, being referred to by ancient authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Traditional Greek dancing has a primarily social function. It brings the community together at key points of the year, such as Easter, the grape harvest or patronal festivals; and at key points in the lives of individuals and families, such as weddings. We invite you to come see Holy Trinity’s very own youth dancers as they don traditional Grecian dress and perform some of these spectacular dances for you! Then, when the time is right, join hands with members of the dancing circle and join in! Beginners are always welcome. Opa!
