Greek Dance groups of Ascension!
Our Ascension Cathedral has had a long history and tradition of providing our youth with education in the art of Traditional Greek Fold Dancing. This, coupled with the Annual Folk Dance Festival, are the cornerstones of our ministry of culture and dance in praise and honor of God and our ancestors.
Our dance program includes the following groups:
Analypsis is our group for children in Grades K-2
Nea Zoe is our group for children in Grades 3-5
Seizmos is our group for children in Grades 6-8
Astrape is our group for children in Grades 9-11
Chrysi Aeti is our Young Adult group, or those who have finished High School.

To assist our young people and their parents, through many aspects of the dance program (including financial support for FDF), we also have an auxiliary organization: Ascension Parents Association (APA). The APA is comprised of parents who work together to support our dance program, and has a hard working executive board and director who organize events and fundraisers to help offset the cost of competition. For more information on APA please contact this year’s president, Peter Mantas.
