OPA! The Art of Folk Dancing
Dancers of this genre will tell you exactly how vibrant this art form is with major competitions held worldwide. Doing its part is Dora Stratou, a well-known, highly regarded Athens-based dance company that refers to itself as a “live dance museum.” Whether you are serious about learning or perhaps perfecting dances that your friends and grandparents may have taught you.
Dora Stratou offers lessons in English as well (in the summer). Of course most dance schools in Athens also teach the most popular dances such as those made famous by movies such as Zorba the Greek, Never of Sunday.
Tip: To get the most out of your folklore experience why not combine a trip to the Folklore Museum.
