A Greek Night to Remember!


Μany travellers to Greece get their first contact with Greek dance through popular films - who could forget Anthony Quinn as Alexis Zorba, in "Zorba the Greek", dancing for the pure joy and pain of living? Filmic fantasies aside, Greek dancing has a long and distinguished past, as well as a thriving present.


In ancient Greece, dancing was believed to be the gift of the gods. Sacred dances were held as offerings to the deities, as commemorations of key events, and as a way of keeping communities together. Pyrrhic dancing was taught to soldiers as a crucial part of their military training, especially in Athens and Sparta.
