Complete the online registration form: https://stgeorge.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/432/responses/new

We welcome and encourage all participants, new members and all skill levels are encouraged  to attend!  The groups within the program are established by the academic grade of the participants. There will be no advancement or retention of dancers based on ability, talent, coordination, interest or maturity. In order to offer a consistent and positive program, dancers will be divided in the following groups:

***Level One (grades K, 1, 2, 3)***
Students learn basic dances and will develop a strong foundation in the movements and rhythms common in Greek Folk Dance, and  will build upon knowledge of basic dances and begin to explore more regions of Greece, learning dances with more complicated steps and various hand holding positions.

***Level Two (grades 4, 5, 6)***
Dancers are introduced to variations of dances all over the regions of Greece. They will begin to understand regional differences in Greek dance, as well as recognition of regional variations in music.

***Level Three (grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)***
Dancers continue to focus on complex dances and variations from all regions of Greece. Members of this team may be called upon to represent the St. George Hellenic Dancers in any other official events.

More information coming soon!

The aim and objective of the St. George Hellenic Dance Troupe is to promote Greek dance in its authentic form. Cultural information relating to the history, costumes, and traditions of the various regions of Greece may be reviewed as it pertains to the instruction of the dance.
