YOUTH FOLK DANCE PROGRAM
Welcome 2016/17 Dancers!
Niata directly translated means“youth” and was originally created both to teach our
traditional dances – such an important part of our culture and history – to the youth of our community, and to keep that youth connected to one another. Part of our mandate is to also present those dances outside of our community, to share Hellenic culture with all Canadians. We are a volunteer-run folk dance group operating under the Hellenic Society of Calgary. The program is for children from 6-18 years. During its 26 year history, Niata members have performed at a variety of municipal and national events, including the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Its original students now have children of their own in the program. It is one of the longest running Hellenic children’s programs in Calgary
