Tour Details

This is your chance to create memories you will never forget! Grab your dancing shoes and join us for an authentic Greek party, filled with music, folk dancing, food and most importantly…fun! Explore the folklore treasures of the country and discover each region through the best, most fun way possible! Skip joyfully with the Cycladic tunes of the violin or glide firmly while listening to the mountainous music of Epirus and mainland Greece. There’s no need for talent, just an appetite for fun!

Tour Highlights
  • Syrtos, kalamatianos and balos are just 3 of over 4000 Greek folk dances! We would love to teach you all of them, but with 90 minutes of private lesson time, we have selected the most popular and fun dances for you to learn.
  • Our experienced dance teacher will be on hand to guide you through the footwork, providing you with interesting facts about the history and origins of each dance.
  • This is a truly authentic Greek experience, complete with traditional food, music and the cheerful company of local people.

Mama Mia, My Big Fat Greek Wedding – if the films are anything to go by, it looks like we know how to throw a fabulous party in Greece! Parade through the picturesque streets of Plaka before taking part in your dance class and an evening full of music and laughter!

Immerse yourself into the culture and history behind some of the most famous Greek dances. This is your invitation to stop being a spectator and become part of the authentic vibe and energy, which is synonymous with Greek parties. Let your enthusiastic dance instructor teach you the steps of the most popular dances of Greece and practice them on the spot with other fellow travelers! Let the rhythm be your guide and don’t worry if you miss a step or two; enjoy your time as Greeks do!

And after all your hard work on the dance floor, you deserve to feast just like the Greek gods!
