Re-established in 2009, the Ellas Dancers uphold Hellenic (Greek) traditions through dance. The Ellas Dancers perform dances from every region of Greece, including regions of mainland Greece, the Greek islands, Asia Minor, Pontos, and Cyprus. In addition to teaching dance steps and style, we also aim educate dancers on the history behind the dances as well as the history of the costumes and their meanings in relation to Greek culture. The Ellas Dancers are fortunate to have talented instructors and dancers that teach dances to various schools and churches throughout the Chicago-land area.

    As a not-for-profit organization, we do not have an annual membership fee, nor do we charge for performances. However we do encourage and accept donations. We welcome everyone, experienced or inexperienced, to join our group; whether you would like to perform or just have fun and exercise. Practices are held every Saturday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm (excluding days of performances, or if posted otherwise), at the Midwest District Building of the Pan-Arcadian Federation, 880 N York St, in Elmhurst Illinois. We accept dancers in the adult performing group from 15 to 40 years of age, and we have a youth group that consists of children from roughly 10 to 14 years of age. If you are interested in any of these programs please feel free to contact us. Thank you for visiting.
