The aim of this study is to investigate how and in what way Greek traditional dance is spreading to the diaspora, with emphasis on the locus of the Faith, Dance, Fellowship competition. In this context, I will examine the attempt of two Greek dance groups in the USA to collect primary ethnographic dance material from Greece, which is denatured as an artistic work, to claim the highest award in the FDF dance competition.
