Greek Folk Dance

The ministry of Greek Folk Dance at Transfiguration has as its main objective to promote the spirit of  celebrating our unity and fellowship in love and praise to God for His blessings as Orthodox Christians.

Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet,

Praise Him with the harp and lyre,

Praise Him with timbrel and dancing. . . (Psalm 150:3,4)

We utilize the cultural heritage of our forefathers, as an inheritance in order to continue fostering strong relationships among our youth, giving them an example of a wholesome way to celebrate God’s blessings, especially as one community, across many generations, dancing in one circle. Greek folk dancing has always been an integral part of celebrating after a major holy feast day or sacrament.

Greek folk dance has also become a ministry to the greater community, performing for other Churches, charitable organizations, and schools.

Transfiguration has two Greek Dance Troupes, Ellinakia and Levendia, who perform at various functions throughout the year. Ellinakia is comprised of students from the 2nd to the 5th grades, while Levendia are middle and high schoolers.
