The London Greek Dancers - Traditional Greek Dancers
Founded in 1986, these London Greek Dancers are traditional Greek dance enthusiasts committed to making authentic, traditional Greek dancing, costumes and music alive. The group has more than 500 successful performances to its credit including international folk dancing festivals and competitions.
The London Greek Dancers are able to present performances of about twenty to thirty minutes (which usually work best), or to your timed requirements. The group normally performs a variety of dances, from Greece and Cyprus, which are enhanced and complimented by an impressive range of authentic regional costumes and music. They also performs the complete range of dance types including circle, line, couple and formation sequences.
The group has given a large number of performances to help raise money for Charity – Oxfam, Telethon, Great Ormond St. Children’s Hospital, Camphill, Arthritis Care, Children of Africa, Radiomarathon and other charitable events.
The London Greek Dancer's performances can be accompanied by live music, which helps to create a true Greek atmosphere. The range of instruments includes: Gaida, Zourna, Violin, Touloum, Pontic Lyra, Lute, Sazi, Bouzouki, Daouli, Dahares and Tarabouka. The origins of every dance have been thoroughly researched, exploring the times before the formation of the Modern Greek State as far back as the ancient Greek times; their repertoire is therefore very extensive. It includes dances from the whole of Greece as well as from regions where historically the Greeks have lived in well-established communities such as Cyprus, Northern Epirus, Eastern Thrace and Asia Minor, including Black Sea.
The London Greek Dancers perform the complete range of dance types including circle, line, couple and formation sequences. Very little attempt has been made to choreograph the dances; any choreography is limited to making the dances more suitable for stage presentation without ever altering the true character of the dances. The performers are meticulous in their authenticity and convey the true spirit of this cultural form and their personal enjoyment to every audience. Performances are enhanced and complimented by an impressive range of authentic costumes representative of most areas.
They are happy to take part in any event where Greek dancing would be appreciated.View similar acts:
