Practice with your Greek friends in an atmosphere that is as natural to folk dancing as it is in the typical Village Square. Dance your way through Greece and return to your home with something more than a purchased souvenir.
WHY FOLK DANCING?
Through the ages, Man struggled to achieve communication. By refining these means, he has attained closer understanding of himself and his society. Folk dances provide him with the opportunity to experience a people's culture; it offers to the participant poise and balance as well as a healthy way of recreation and social communication.
DANCING ALONG WITH THE GREEKS
Dancing is so much a part of the daily life of the Greeks that hardly a gathering or an event is complete without spontaneous dancing and singing. At a time when man is contemplating his fate, the Greeks, through the Arts, have shaped a purpose and celebrated life with song and dance. Their dances have remained alive for thousands of years and remain with us today as a living testament of the people who love life.
