Explanation: Hola. A hoedown is three things:
1.- a lively folk-dance (Shorter)
2.- a social gathering for dancing hoe-downs (Shorter)
3.- a word missing from my English-Spanish dictionaries. Not impressed.
For meaning no.1, I believe the stress is on "lively" so I would go for "danza rápida" (i don't know how fast they go, if they really go hay-wire you could then use "danza frenética"): "auténtica danza rápida helena (helénica)"
Also, I can think of one exact & gorgeous word for meaning no. 2: "sarao" (as in "sarao flamenco"). Olé: "fue un auténtico sarao helénico (heleno)"
"auténtica danza rápida helena (helénica)". Hope it helps, love your text, cheers :)
