Greek traditional dances by mariannaphotography Greek traditional dances by mariannaphotography
This photo is from a performance with a cultural group "Chorostasi" dancing folk and traditional dances from all the greek islands.
I am a part of this group too but this was the first time in 13 years that I wasn't a part of the show :(
But I was shooting...Still I've missed dancing I hope I'll get back to my team soon! <3
In this specific photo this couple (Labros and Eleni) is performing a dance from Kythnos [link] danced in couples with the man making the woman turning around many many times. Those turns are called "fourla" in single "fourles" in plural.
(I am a part of the group and I've always been a good dancer, but learning "fourles" from Kythnos has been my Everst cause I always get so dizzy!!!"
You can see chorostasi performing this dance over here [link]

The quality is not very good but still I love it! :love:)

And you can see more videos from our performances on our channel on youtube! [link]

Thank you! :blowkiss:
