Greek Food and Dance

THE FOOD

Passing down the traditions is important   

    You see, Greeks don’t cook just to eat.  Cooking is a ritual, a loving preparation of nourishment in order to please our family and guests.  And the food is delicious.  I mean, what would you expect from those who invented nectar and ambrosia?
    Cooking is not just preparing a meal.  Greeks not only take great pride in their culinary skills but the ultimate joy would be to please their guests.  As you know, Greek hospitality is legendary!

THE DANCE

    Most Greek folk dances originate in a very ancient tradition. They express love or happiness, prepare the men for war, or joyfully celebrate weddings. They can be danced by couples or by groups, in line or in a circle. Until quite recently, some dances were danced either by men or women and the interpretation differed in each case, even though the name and the music remained the same. In Greece, each region and each island has its own dances and has contributed to enrich the Greek cultural heritage. The steps of the dances differ from town to village and even from one family style to another. This diversity is apparent in the costumes which reflect the regional origin, the village, the family and the marital status. City dwellers contribute a different style of dress from the country people to this rich heritage.
