Meet us on the dance floor: Getting to know Lindsey Fostinis Kivetos

Published on: 31st March, 2021

Lindsey Fostinis Kivetos, from Sacramento California, is a lifelong lover (and student!) of Greek dancing. A native of Anchorage, Alaska, with formative years spent dancing and directing in the small but mighty community of Modesto, she currently is the director of the young adult group, Deos in the Annunciation parish. She has done extensive research in many regions, but her specialty and passion are the traditions, dances, and songs from Roumlouki, Macedonia (present day Alexandreia). As an attendee of over 33 FDF's, Lindsey has been fortunate to participate and in and instruct many award winning groups; most recently Deos as the recipient of the 2020 Division I Sweepstakes award - the realization of a partnership and shared dream of Lindsey and her incredible teacher and role model, Mr. Axilleas Tsiaras. 

Lindsey's goal in teaching is to continue the love and respect she has for our incredible shared culture with future generations and to help create an environment of authentic kefi - something that has been instilled in her from an early age by her incredible teachers. She believes that to dance perfectly is to dance with heart and soul, and she seeks to inspire that in each dancer. 

You can find Lindsey anywhere the zourna plays. :)
