A concert for yiayia and pappou
Melbourne's Manasis School of Greek Dance and Culture will be hosting the annual Grandparents Day Concert, an event to show appreciation for students' grandparents and other relatives
Melbourne's Manasis School of Greek Dance and Culture will be hosting the annual Grandparents Day Concert, an event to show appreciation for students' grandparents and other relatives. Beginning several years ago as a small dance class for students and their families, the event has drawn more attention from the wider community.
To celebrate Grandparents Day this year, the school has organised a concert where each and every one of our classes, right through from our three year-old beginners to our senior students, will perform a medley of Greek dances. The event is an opportunity for our students to dress in traditional costumes and perform dances learnt throughout the semester. During this year's show, there will also be live instrumental performances and various presentations from some very talented students as well other special guests.
Throughout the duration of the concert, the projector AV slideshow will act as a sentimental backdrop to the whole event, screening wedding photos of the grandparents of the students and families.
The Grandparents Day Concert will take place on Saturday 23 June at Kingston City Hall, 984 Nepean Hwy, Moorabbin. Doors open at 1:30pm and commences at 2:00pm. Tickets are $10 per person and must be purchased before the event. For more information or to purchase your ticket call (03) 9774 7450. All students and performers are free.
