It is very probable that you have watched the film Zorba the Greek on television. But even if you have not seen it, perhaps you have felt the urge to learn a traditional Greek dance or the need to experience an original Greek feast. Prepare to discover the Zorba inside you and learn the steps of your favorite Greek folk dance!

After meeting our local guide at the Acropolis Metro Station, you will have a 10' walk in the most beautiful Athenian road, Dionisiou Aeropagitou Street. Our professional dance instructor will be waiting for you in a private, beautiful place, where the dancing lesson will take place. Through a fun and simple process, with the help of our instructor, you will be introduced to the cultural importance of traditional Greek dances. You will find out how the differences between various kinds of dances were derived from the area and the philosophy of the people living in it. After the introduction, you will join the circle and follow the steps of popular dances like “kalamatianos” and “syrtos”. Last but not least, you will follow the vivid rhythm of the memorable “syrtaki”.

After all this dancing, you will probably start feeling hungry. What better time to enjoy a savory Greek meal in a traditional place with a view to Acropolis, while listening to live Greek music? Your local expert will lead you right to it! With the company of warmhearted local friends you will be enticed into an original Greek feast, or “glendi” in Greek.
