Greek Dance Lessons

If you've come to our Festival, you may have seen the Parea (Greek for friends), our adult dance group. The group gets together at the church on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7pm to practice. All are welcome. If you always wanted to try Greek dance, or you're just looking to experience something new, please join us. No reservations are necessary, and there's no charge. Call Martha Poulos at 805-558-2633 more information about Parea.
