Dance practice is Sunday after church services and Thursday.
The Resurrection Greek Dance program was founded in the early 1970’s by Anna Efstathiou. The Castro Valley parish was one of the founding communities of the Greek Orthodox Folk Dance and Choral Festival which is sponsored by the Metropolis of San Francisco and held annually in February.
Through the years, our groups have performed at numerous Greek Festivals throughout the Bay Area where they have showcased the Greek culture through authentic music, dance, and costumes. Our dancers have also entertained at many community facilities and events such as nursing homes, senior centers, and local schools. The Dance Groups have received numerous awards for their authentic dance costumes and dance performances.
Currently, our thriving program consists of three groups ranging in age from kindergarten through middle school. Our Dance families are busy fundraising throughout the year to enrich the program with new costumes, music, and further research.
The Dance program is open to all age appropriate Stewards of Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church.
