According to the program "The Kanellos Ballet Hellenique has for its purpose the reviving of the Classic Greek Dance and Dramatique pantomime. Under the guidance of M. Kanellos, the ballet will present from the great dramas of Greek Classic literature those scenes and episodes best known the world over and from modern Greece; it will present the simple dances of the shepherds and peasants with their peculiar native charm."
