“We have had great moments with our guests from Greece and the whole world. We thank the Hellenic Tourism Organization for its auspices and courtesy, the International Dance Council (CID – Unesco), the ANT1 and ERT TV channels for the coverage of the Festival, as well as all our sponsors for their support in this event that  brought together people, customs and cultures. It was thus confirmed, quite rightly, our belief that the dance unites people and nations, since it knows no boundaries and limitations. We are updating our appointment for the 7th Bollywood and Multicultural Dance Festival in July 2019, until we meet again.”

The Festival is under the aegis of the Greek National Tourism Organization (EOT) and the International Dance Council (CID – UNESCO) and it was organized by the Artistic Studio Oriental Expression, the 1st Bollywood Dance Academy Greece and the Hellenic-Indian Society for Culture and Development (ELINEPA).
