Metropolis of Atlanta HDF Odyssey Scholarship Applications

Every few years, our Hellenic Dance Festival offers youth or young adults of the Metropolis of Atlanta's family an experience to learn the beauty of our Faith and Culture by traveling to Greece. Participants will travel as a group and participate in Dance Workshops, Performances, Village Panigyris, and visit various Cultural & Historical Sites. This trip will allow teens or dance instructors an opportunity to experience Greece as a local. By having our annual HDF, the Odyssey program covers the cost for the land travel while we are in Greece, covering hotels, most meals, tour guides, transportation, workshops, etc. 

There are several purposes of this program. This opportunity is meant to inspire our young people to value and contribute to cultural opportunities by experience traditional Greek folk dance in its natural setting. Participants can gain a deeper appreciation for our Hellenic Culture and rich Orthodox faith and tradition.

Odyssey Scholarships are offered to individuals who are dedicated to the ideals and mission of the Hellenic Dance Festival. Following the Odyssey journey, participants are expected to share their experience and knowledge with others. They should be active participants in the local parishes, as well as the Metropolis sponsored HDF weekend and beyond.

All active parish dance instructors that are 21+ years old that have participated in the Metropolis of Atlanta's Hellenic Dance Festival are invited to apply for the Winter 2025 Odyssey Program Trip. 

Applications are due June 15.
