A statement from the Organizers:
“Together with our guests from Greece and all over the world, we lived intense, unforgettable moments. We kindly thank the Greek National Tourism Organization under whose Auspices and kind support our Festival was conducted, the International Dance Council (CID – Unesco), ANT1 channel and ERT for the TV coverage of our Festival, and also all of our Sponsors for offering their support to this event that brought together people, customs and cultures. It has always been our firm belief that dance knows no limitations and prejudices, and that it unites people, races and cultures; a belief that was, once more, spectacularly validated. We are renewing our rendez-vous at the 7ο “Bollywood and Multicultural Dance Festival” in June of 2019!”
