What you can expect

Do it like “Zorbas the Greek” in the famous film and follow us to a memorable evening full of music and rhythm. Get in the mood and warm up your legs with a short walk through the scenic Areopagitou Street to finally end up to the place where your Greek folk dance class will take place.

Our fun and professional dance teacher will take you in a journey to the culture and history behind the Greek folk dances, introducing you smoothly to the energy you need to feel in every step of each dance. Join the dancing circle and hold each other’s hands to follow the steps of the most popular Greek folk dances like “kalamatianos”, “syrtos” and –of course- the very famous “syrtaki”.

Having worked your legs off, your dancing adventure will lead you to a traditional place where you will have fun the way Greeks do. With an amazing view of the illuminated Acropolis, you get the chance to experience an original Greek feast or “glendi” in Greek: delicious dinner, punchy wine, Greek music and great company of warmhearted locals will fill up your evening with lots of laughter and dance.
Are you ready to have fun like the Greeks do?

Tour Reviews

Highlight to our Athens trip
Highlight to our Athens trip

My wife & I did this activity on our last night in Athens and it was the highlight of our trip! As others have stated, this wan't a tourist show. This was an actual dance class and it was fantastic! The teacher was amazing and we had a great time. If you want an authentic Greek experience this is the way to do it! My wife & I were the only 2 people for this class so it made it that much more special! We had our own private class. The meal afterwards was very good! I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Athens! You won't be disappointed.

Wonderful evening in Athens!
Wonderful evening in Athens!

We were the only two the evening we did this class which was a wonderful experience. It was very energetic (don't plan it the same day you do a 5 mile walk around Athens!) and we learned so much about the dances. We enjoyed everything about it even though I had to sit through part of it as I was too tired to keep up.
Not only did we learn the dances but we learned how to understand how the dances worked. It was a real dance class, not just a tourist show- the teacher was excellent. And we had a lovely dinner afterwards- Highly recommend this experience.

Definitely 1 of the 2 highlights of our trip. It was something that i will never forget. It was unique and extremely fun. Since it was only my wife and I, it felt like we were getting a private lesson from one of the most dedicated Greek Dancer ever. She had the patience of a saint and the entire experience made for a perfect ending of our trip! If you can only do 2 things in Athens, this must be one of them!

Lovely customized tour in Athens
Lovely customized tour in Athens

In a country that can sometimes feel very disorganized, Greeking was easy to work with and very friendly. We had them customize a tour involving greek dancing followed by a spirits tasting in Athens and I have to say, this was probably the best thing we did in Athens. Our guide (Eleni) was knowledgeable, friendly and even sent us an email with recommendations for the rest of our trip in other cities and islands. We got to taste some great spirits and discovered Mastiha which was definitely a good thing. Highly recommend using them while in Athens.

My Inner Zorba Dance Class!
My Inner Zorba Dance Class!

Oh my gosh ... what to say??
We just returned from a fantastic trip to Greece and I wanted to thank your team at Greeking Me for putting together a wonderful experience for us - My Inner Zorba!! The dance class was so much fun and we couldn't stop laughing and dancing to the beat!! (There were four of us and we were grouped in with about 10 others which made it all the more fun - the group ages ranged from 6-60 and everyone enjoyed!!)

Elena was lovely and so knowledgeable - she provided tour information, explained the sites as we strolled from our pick up location to designated dance class and later to dinner. She was great and looking out for a group of young tourists in our group that were 'going clubbing' later in the evening. We enjoyed our dinner (yummo!) and the lively conversation. All in all, a memorable night and something I would highly recommend and would do this again!. Opa!
