KYKLOS Hellenic Performing Arts Group is a not-for-profit organization based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Established in 1983 its mission is to preserve and promote the Hellenic (Greek) culture through the performing arts. The name “KYKLOS” means circle which is typical of most Greek dances which are performed in a circular motion.

The organization was created by Caterina Pizanias and a group of university students of Greek descent.  KYKLOS is operated by a group of thirty dedicated volunteer members that put in hundreds of hours each year learning and perfecting songs and dances from throughout Greece and Cyprus. The group performs throughout the year at festivals, charity events, Greek commemoration events, schools, etc.

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

KYKLOS performs in authentic traditional folk costumes which the group has collected over the years.  We currently have nearly 400 dance costumes representing many areas of Greece.  Our long-term goal is to create a collection which can form a permanent exhibit of quality costume replicas.
