2019 Metropolis of New Jersey

Hellenic Folk Dance Festival

The Metropolis of New Jersey Hellenic Folk Dance Festival (FDF) competition at Annapolis Maryland is being held this year from January 18 – 20, 2019.  Father Panagiotis would like all dancers to attend this conference and Kimisis will be paying all the expenses.  The competition is open to all ages.  We will leave from Holmdel around 6pm on Friday, 1/18/19 and get back around 8pm Sunday, 1/20/19. See this attachment for more information  FDF 2019. If you have any questions, feel free to email Despina Markos at gmarkos@whatsourfuture.com or come to our first practice on 10/11 (all parents are welcome).

The competition consists of 2 dance routines.  One performed on Sat and the other on Sun.  The routines are not going to be complicated and everyone that can come will be dancing.  The rules require the dances to be balanced and authentic.  So the dances will be pretty straight
forward, and thus, relatively easy to learn and perform. Precision, balance, authenticity and attitude are what the judges are looking for, not fancy kicks or acrobatics. With that said, we only have about 10-12 practices, so please try to make as many of them as you can.Practices are going to be on THURSDAYS from 7:30-8:30pm, starting Thursday, 10/11.  The registration forms are due by 12/15, so I will need to know who can go by the end of November. Last year Holmdel sent 12 youths to the conference and we had a wonderful time.  We would love to get even more to come this year. We both look forward to working with you all and having a wonderful time in Maryland.  This will be our fifth time going to FDF. Hope to see you on Thursdays and that many represent Kimisis this year. Father Panagiotis, George & Despina Markos
