Our mission is to pass on to the next generation the precious and rich heritage of traditional Greek song and dance, which express the history, joy and pure celebration of life’s events. Our program aims to promote fellowship and a shared love and appreciation for this history.
Hosting the 2015 Hellenic Dance Festival (HDF) was a particular thrill for our program, as we welcomed approximately 1000 Greek dance enthusiasts to our city. HDF 2015 brought unprecedented competitive success for our program, with all of our groups earning third place or higher in their respective categories. In addition, both Division I and Division II Diamond Award winners were from Holy Trinity (Fourtouna and Thrylos).
At the 2020 Hellenic Dance Festival, held in Orlando in January, Holy Trinity’s four competitive groups represented our program beautifully and were recognized with the following awards:
Fourtouna (Directors: Chloe Savvides, Kathy Xyrafakis, John Shelton)
– Gold Medal, Advanced Intermediate Category, Choral Award
