Beginning from the period of occupancy of the island, when the free expression of feelings through words was banned, the inhabitants have found that the most expressive way to show their emotions is through the sound of traditional music and dance.
Arolithos Traditional Cretan Village organizes Cretan & Greek dance
lessons daily in the village. The starting time is at 12:00 pm and the
activity lasts 2 hours.
An English speaking member of our personnel dressed in traditional uniform, welcomes you with a treatment of raki and nuts, while was giving you more information about Cretan & Greek dances.
A professional teacher of dances will show you the most popular dances of Crete and Greece. Learn how to dance the famous Zorbas - sirtaki, kalamatianos, anogianos and many many others.
