Bring all your moves and get ready to “Dance like a local”! Held in a village just outside Heraklion, this is your opportunity to take part in a fun Greek dance lesson. Have you ever watched the Greek people party and wish you could be part of the scene? Well this is your opportunity to drink, dance and dine, just like a local! Be a part of an authentic Greek ‘glendi’ and let the music take over your body. This is an experience you shouldn’t miss; the Cretan ways will ensure that your trip to Greece will become your sweetest memory!
This dance experience will allow you to immerse yourself into the culture of Greece, specifically of Crete. The scene is set as you stroll through atmospheric cobbled streets of a pretty village just 30 minutes away from Heraklion.
Your class will be held in the village square, which boasts of stunning panoramas over the Cretan countryside. As the local folk music starts, your dance teacher will lead you through the world-famous Greek sequences. Join the dance circle and dance your worries away to the music.
In order to mingle with the locals, you must learn how to follow the steps. Therefore, pay attention to your dance instructor and apply your skills when the time to dance like a local Cretan comes.
At the end of your lesson, we will gift you a complimentary CD with traditional Greek and Cretan tracks, so you can practice your moves at home.
The evening’s highlight is a delicious Cretan Feast, known locally as a ‘glendi’, which consists of copious amounts of wine, in true Cretan fashion, and even more dancing. Dance till you drop surrounded by Cretan professional dancers wearing traditional costumes and enjoy a night of feasting, fun and frolics!
