Greeks dancing > your Big Fat Greek Feet May 13, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Diaspora Festivals.

Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church’s 49th annual festival at the church on North Highland, with spanakopita, baklava, church tours, and Greek dancing.

Sometimes Americans are wary of Greek dancing because it looks complicated and you have to hold hands, often with someone you don’t know. But, as veteran Greek dancers, taught by some of the oldest and most skilled Greek dancers in the world, we can assure you that it’s very simple.

Oh, just forget it. Just do a little hippie dance to the right … and make sure the kid next to you hasn’t been eating baklava with his bare hands.

Big Fat Greek Festival > Annual festival with authentic Greek food, traditional dance, live music, and a marketplace of clothing, jewelry, and more. Fri.-Sat., May 11-12, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. $2. Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 573 N. Highland, (Midtown), 327-8177.
