What you can expect

Time for an experience that will take you to the heart of Cretan culture! Visit a traditional Cretan village just 30 minutes away from Heraklion city center and live an unforgettable Cretan experience! You will stroll around cobblestoned laneways and discover a traditional village as it used to be fifty years ago.

Your dance class takes place at the village square overlooking the Cretan fields. An experienced Greek dance teacher will introduce you to the magic of local folk music and will show you the most popular Greek and Cretan dances step by step. You will join the dancing circle holding each other’s hands and follow the steps feeling the energy of the musical rhythm. At the end of the lesson, a small gift will be waiting for you to take back home: a CD with Greek and Cretan music!

Time has come to practice what you’ve learnt! All roads lead to a Cretan feast – or “glendi” in Greek - that has it all: dance, Cretan food and lots of punchy wine! Professional Cretan dancers will perform on the stage and you will join them for a night of dancing fun!
