Vicky Hioureas has been involved with Greek folk dancing for over 17 years. She has been dancing with the same award-winning dance group, Levendia, since she was four-years-old, and has recently been bringing her experience to the surrounding Greek Orthodox communities.
She now directs the dance group Methorios at the Greek Orthodox Mission of San Juan Capistrano. Vicky has learned to play the daouli, the folk drum, and has also performed as a singer for many dance groups. She is passionate about preserving the Greek folk dance culture and works to pass on her energy to her students. Vicky has also traveled to Northern Greece to conduct research in the stylistic (and linguistic) intricacies of the Thracian region.
