Greek Dancing in the heart of San Francisco

After performing at our amazing festival in September, the Annunciation Cathedral Greek folk dance groups are hard at work preparing for the 2018 annual Folk Dance Festival. Although our groups are currently closed to new dancers from October 1st until after FDF in January, we would love to speak with prospective dancers and parents about joining our program next year.

The members of the Annunciation dance family are thrilled this year to represent the Cathedral in our home town for the 42nd annual Greek Orthodox Folk Dance & Choral Festival (FDF), which will take place January 11-14, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Francisco, CA! One third of parishes that participate in FDF are located near the Bay Area. Additionally, San Francisco is home to the Metropolis of San Francisco, which has supported FDF since 1976. We are excited to bring this event to back to Northern California, an area so connected to the FDF community!

The Cathedral’s award winning dance program consists of experienced and dedicated directors, talented dancers, and supportive families and community. All groups are currently open to new dancers for a limited time. Our program encompasses everyone from five years old to young adult.
