KYKLOS – Hellenic Performing and Literary Arts Group

KYKLOS

KYKLOS is an independently run, not-for-profit organization based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that was established in 1983 to preserve and promote the Hellenic (Greek) performing arts. The organization was created by Caterina Pizanias and a group of university students of Hellenic descent.

Kyklos is operated by a group of dedicated volunteers that put in hundreds of hours each year learning and perfecting songs and dances from various areas throughout Greece and Cyprus.

The name “KYKLOS” in Greek means ‘Circle’, which is typical of most Greek dances which are performed in a circular motion.

KYKLOS is proud to have traveled across the world to perform, compete, and attend workshops in places such as Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Prague, Wales, Canada, and the United States of America.
