HCCY 40th Anniversary Celebration – A Great Success!
Thank you to all members and guests who attended our 40th Anniversary Celebration. This year’s sold out event was simply magical and truly a night to remember. Our Hellenic Academy of York students under the direction of Simone Gavros our dance instructor, put on an amazing dance performance. Everything from the DJ, the hall, to the special guest performances were top notch. For all those who missed the event, sorry we missed you and we hope to see you in attendance next year. A special thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers, students dancers, and guest performers Levendia-X for making this another unforgettable HCCY event.
Congratulations to Katerina Mouroukis who was randomly drawn from all student dancers and won a 2020/2021 FREE TUITION from participating in our
