The association offers various activities such like for example traditional Greek dances group, European and modern dance courses, amateur theatre team, meditation team and ballet team. Additionally, it retains a library as well as disposes a rich wardrobe of Greek traditional costumes (Thrace, Macedonian, Minor Asia and Kapadokia, Hyperous and Greek Islands.)

 Since 1992, Ecological and Cultural Association of Perea have taken part in many traditional dance festivals. The members of the traditional Greek dance group present dances from all regions of Greece at festivals in their home country and abroad.
