Learn Greek dance with us

The BLE strives to bring Hellenic folk arts to life through dance suites that demonstrate the diversity of Greek regional culture. From intricately choreographed partner dances to meticulously synchronized circle dances, our performances transport audiences through the musical landscape of the Hellenic world, from the lilting cadences of the Greek islands, the vigorous rhythms of the Pontic Greeks of Asia Minor, the regal women’s dances of northern mainland Greece and a wealth of other styles in between.

Our troupe is dedicated to sharing Greek culture with broader audiences in the Boston area through both performance and classes. We hope that those intrigued by our performances will also join us for our open dance classes and workshops!

We offer many opportunities to explore this beloved component of Greek culture.
