Greek Dances

What is a Greek dance?

Dance has always played an important role in the life of a Greek. It is an expression of human feelings and everyday life. The Greeks dance at religious festivals, ceremonies, to celebrate victories and weddings

There are two distinct categories in the traditional Greek dance; the springing/leaping dance and the shuffle/dragging dance known as sirtos; the latter being the oldest form of dance. Most dances are circle dances, start with the right foot and move counter-clockwise.
