​Rhythm and Dance - The material

Greek dance is a beautiful and joyful way of moving. Mainly danced in circle, the single dancer is not necessarily focussed but supported by the whole circle and gives timid participants confidence and courage. Greek dance helps education in body awareness, agility and body condition: a therapy for body and mind!

Due to the location of the workshop, a great attention will be given to Cretan dances, but in general rhythms and dances from all over Greece will be taught, including areas that do not belong anymore to the Greek state, but have left a great and still alive cultural heritage, such as Asia Minor, Cappadocia, Pontus. Moreover, Greek musical and choreutic language is very rich and varied from region to region.

Liebe Isabella
Ich habe wunderbare Ferientage erlebt, und durfte einen Teil Südkretas auf eine Art kennenlernen, wie dies mit mit einer herkömmlichen Ferienbuchung nie möglich gewesen wäre.
Neben den Tanzstunden, die ich sehr genossen habe, hast Du uns an untouristische Orte geführt, uns deren "Flair" gezeigt, und vieles zu deren Geschichte, auch allgemein zu Griechenland und im Speziellen zu Kreta erzählt und erklärt. Das war toll! Die Vielfalt dessen, was ich gesehen und erfahren habe, fasziniert mich sehr.
Deine Spontanität und Ungezwungenheit hat mir Eindruck gemacht und auch die Tatsache, wie Du da voll integriert bist, und von den Menschen geschätzt und geachtet wirst.
Ich habe viele wertvolle Erfahrungen gemacht und liebenswürdige, offene und im Leben engagierte Menschen kennengelernt.
Dafür danke ich Dir von Herzen, und natürlich für die tollen Tanzabende zu Live-Musik!

Priska F.
