THE OLYMPIAN DANCERS FOLLOW US

The Olympian Dancers Greek dance troupe was established in 1995 in order to provide the young Greeks and Greek-Americans of our community an opportunity to learn and participate in their heritage through the art of dance. In the years that followed, our small group blossomed into a large family of dancers hailing from all over the greater Houston-Galveston area. The troupe strives to recreate traditional Greek dances as accurately as possible. As a result, the Olympians have expanded the repertoire of dances, as well as costumes, to provide showcase performances of traditional Greek dances from all regions of Greece.
