Thank you to Zeljko Eftihi Loncar for this image!


At our recent Membership Dance Apokries 2015, guests were treated to a wonderful display of our dancing group’s talent with an impromptu showcase of our new Reverend Father Constantinos Economos’ enviable dance moves. What fun!

So why at times was the dance floor bare and how come more women are dancing than men? If you were listening to “table talk” you might have heard:

• I missed out on dance lessons when I was younger because …
• I was too busy working and didn’t have time (for dance lessons)…
• I have not seen any dance lessons for adults since I was married to…

If we all agree “Dance plays an important role in the life of a Cretan with traditional dance being passed from generation to generation.” then the Board is interested in helping everyone get up on the dance floor and pass on this tradition. If you would consider taking a short term class to learn one or two basic Cretan dances please fill out this survey. Let’s get your OPA on!

Don’t forget to register your children in dance so they can’t say they missed out on lessons when they grow up! Children can join our dance groups anytime during the year.
