The Annual Midwest Hellenic Dance Festival, is an annual event taking place each Columbus Day Weekend. It is the newest ministry of the Metropolis of Chicago and enjoyed much success during its inaugural year of 2016.
Our October event consists of dance workshops on Friday evening and Saturday, led by expert instructors covering various areas of Greece. It culminates with a Saturday night Glendi showcasing dance troupes from various parts of the Midwest and the Chicago Metropolis and live entertainment.
Each year will offer something new to the weekend of festivities.
It is our hope that through this annual event, we will develop an awareness, appreciation and love for our Hellenic culture and create a greater communion and stronger ties with fellow Greek Orthodox Christians for generations to come.
