A troupe of forty young adults and childen from the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church of Pawtucket Rhode Island perform the traditional Greek Folk dances and wear original costumes from Greece. They perform at the church's annual August Greek Festival. A smaller group travels and performs at other festivals and events.

Greek Pride was established in 1989 by Mrs. Pauline Vastis and Mrs. Maria Lyssikatos as a way to bring the children of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church together through their love of Greek dance and music.

The troupe grew, with an average of 40 children, teens and adults participating each year, performing at the Church's annual festival each August. Currently under the direction of Andrea Vastis, along with co-directors Nancy Georgitsis & George Microulis, and dance and costume consultant Pauline Vastis, the troupe performs a wide variety of modern and traditional Greek dances.

The Greek Pride Dancers will perform at the Annual Grecian Festival in late August of every year.
