On July 4th, I was able to travel out to Lake Isle to Camp Koinonia to visit the Novak Plast Ukrainian Scout camp going on there. Along with me, I brought some Greek dancers from Kyklos Edmonton. The afternoon was dedicated to teaching the elementary aged campers how to Greek dance, in duos, trios and the traditional circle dance. They were also able to learn about some very interesting Greek history and culture. We learned that the word kyklos means circle. Many of the campers compared the Greek costumes and dance steps to Ukrainian culture.
After the dancing was over and everyone was completely worn out, we were able to replenish with some snacks that included a very cute Ukrainian-themed cake.
Be sure to check out our Facebook post here for more pictures of the event and some videos.
