Ethnic Greek Dancing and Live Music

 

One of the highlights that brings everyone back to our festival year after year is the entertainment. That's because our community has a rich culture and history of regionally recognized and award winning Greek folk dancing performing groups. The Grecian Odyssey Dancers of Ypapanti dance group have been performing throughout the tri-state area and abroad for over thirty years, but the showcase performances are always at their home Festival in East Pittsburgh. Each night, the Grecian Odyssey Dancers perform a vast repertoire of dances from the islands and mainland of Greece in authentic regional costumes . Along with the Grecian Odyssey Dancers, its junior group, The Junior Olympian Dancers also performs daily at the Festival.

 

After witnessing the fantastic folk dancing performances, we invite everyone to join in on the fun and dance to the fantastic live Greek music of Sotiris and the Filarakia.
