WelcomeMetropolis of Boston Youth Dance Group

Welcome to the home page of the Metropolis of Boston Youth Dance Group. The Metropolis of Boston Youth Dance Program was founded in 1989 by Niki Dimotaki-Sokolove under the auspices of His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios.

The mission established by founder Niki Dimotaki-Sokolove and His Eminence was to instill the culture and tradition of Hellenism and the appreciation of this great heritage in the Greek Orthodox youth of the Boston Metropolis through fellowship, learning, folk dances, and songs. The program of instruction was designed by Kiria Νίκi to emphasize the authentic aspects of Greek folk dance, including music recorded with regional instruments and costumes hand-sewn by ελληνοράφτες. Today, under the direction of Dr. John Pappas, the Program strives to maintain the established mission and uphold the authenticity of our heritage while building upon the foundations set by Niki Dimotaki-Sokolove and His Eminence.
