Activity Description

Join this fun evening Greek fiesta and experience the traditional Greek way of partying! This exceptional experience will show you the first steps of popular Greek dances; following your Greek dance class, the real party will begin with lots of drinking and eating during an evening when you will have the chance to practice your new moves!

This evening experience starts with a short walk (as a warm up!) through the scenic Areopagitou Street, one of the most beautiful pedestrian streets of Athens below the Acropolis. On foot, you will end up to where the Greek dance lessons will take place.  
Your fun and professional dance teacher will take you in a journey to the culture and history behind the Greek folk dances, introducing you smoothly to the energy you need to feel in every step of each dance. You will join the dancing circle and hold each other’s hands to follow the steps of the most popular Greek folk dances like “kalamatianos”, “syrtos” and –of course- the very famous “syrtaki”.
Following your dance class, you will move to a traditional Greek taverna where you will have the chance to practise your new moves and have fun like a Greek "Zorba", the way Greeks do, overlooking the illuminated Acropolis. The 'glendi' (aka traditional Greek feast) will begin with a delicious dinner, wine and Greek music over the company of locals who will fill up your evening with lots of laughter and dance.
