Enjoy the energetic live traditional Greek dance performances by the church’s own folk dance festival winning dancers. We have multiple dances taking place throughout the duration of the festival so keep an eye on the dance floor. Feel free to join in on the fun and learn the dances for yourself.
We are very proud of the Greek Folk Dance ministry at St. John the Baptist. Under the direction of our fabulous volunteer dance instructors, these young dancers begin practice in August in preparation for competition at the Greek Orthodox Folk Dance and Choral Festival. Held annually in February, the Dance and Choral Festival is attended by hundreds of dancers from all over the San Francisco Metropolis.
Each year we have seen tremendous growth in our number of participants and in the ability of the dancers. We are blessed in this community that so many of our children want to learn about their Greek culture through dance and song and that we have such dedicated volunteer instructors willing to work with our kids. We have also been able to highlight some of our own youth musicians in the performances.
