NAOUSSA - Ancient Mieza

The town of Naoussa sits at the foot of Mount Vermion. According to the ancient Greek mythology, Semeli, the mother of God Dionysos, lived on these slopes and that the magnificent dancer Silinos, the faithful companion of the God of vineyard and wine, was born in this area. Here lay the renowned Macedonian Tombs of Lefkadia and Aristotle's school at Isvoria is very close to the town of Naoussa, where Alexander the Great was a student of the great Greek Philosopher.

For the past three years, the Hellas Dancers of Holy Trinity Greek  Orthodox Church in Clearwater, Florida have placed in the top three at  the Hellenic Dance and Choral Festival.  Their dramatic Yianitsari and  Boules presentation, complemented by spectacular and elaborately  detailed armatoliki costumes, is not only a faithful reproduction of  the carnival of Naousa, or Naoussa, but a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.   Naousa is a city in the Imathia Prefecture of Macedonia, Greece.
