A popular traditional Greek dance is the “Kalamatianos”, which you can see or dance at every happy occasion in Greece (such as weddings,  celebrations, Easter Sunday, etc.). Also during the Omilo Greek Language and Culture courses, students are introduced to some Greek dancing steps, and practice the kalamatianos.
Here an introduction about this dance, and we hope you will soon dance along

During the intensive Omilo Greek Language and Culture courses in Nafplion, Lefkada and Syros, we introduce our students to Greek dancing. Not on a professional level, but as an introduction to various dances from all over Greece, as well as  its music.
For most students, it is the perfect relaxation and gymnastics, after having 4 hours of Greek lessons! And of course, it is FUN!

Click below to see some videos where we practice the Kalamatianos on the island of Syros.
Of course,  for those students feeling confident enough, they join the  teachers and also dance during the tavern meals 😊
