We would like to recognize the major achievements and accomplishments of our "Dynamis Hellenic Dancers" competition dance group from the Assumption Cathedral.  This is the first win for the Cathedral dance program and a major accomplishment!!

This dance group includes people ages 14 - 30 who are participants within our HDA program and the Idomeneas Cretan Group who have the desire and dedication to continue with traditional dances from all around Greece. 

The Dynamis team traveled to Orlando, Florida on MLK weekend for the Annual HDF (Hellenic Dance Festival) competition within the Metropolis of Atlanta Diocese.  The HDA and all its members are proud to recognize that the team placed with a Bronze Medal Award for the complex suites of dances performed!!  Many months of preparation, hard work and hours of practices have paid off.

Please join us in congratulating the following people who competed on behalf of HDA:   

Elenie Louvaris
Arielle Louvaris
Evan Andretsos
Mary Johns
Isabella Stefanoudakis
Seleni Sonmez
Evie Demos
Jason Hristopoulos

A special shout out to Elenie Louvaris who has been the Dynamis Instructor and a dance participant for the past two years.  Her sister, Arielle, joined this year as a co-instructor, as well as a dance participant.  Charissa Gianos is also a co-instructor and head cheerleader with her many years of leadership and support of the HDA program.  The group owes much gratitude to Elenie and Arielle for their excellent understanding, experience, and enthusiasm for Greek Folk Dance which helped catapult our group into the Awards Ceremonies!!  Bravo sas oli!

HDA would also like to say Thank You to Fr Chris and Fr Dimitri as well as the Parish Council for their continued support of the Dance Program.
