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:

ωραία!

I learned some very basic Greek dances during the year in college that I lived in Athens, but that's all gone from memory along with most of my Greek.

I think it's a pretty good shot, not easy to catch people dancing like that.

:laughing: How serendipitiously humorous!
I'm going to our local Greek festival this weekend, and going to watch the dancing.
My friend's little boy loved to join in on the dances when he was little, they had to keep him from trundling right into the center of it. :laughing:
We won't get to hear the mom sing this time, because she's over there in Greece right now. :tantrum:

:hug: Great photo!

Yeah I loved it - trying to get back into it after a couple years being in college. My yiayia was born there, came here in 1944. Are you Cretan, or from another island, or what...?
