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 that remains the same as it was over fifty years ago.

Your dance class takes place in the village square overlooking the Cretan fields. An experienced Greek dance teacher will introduce you to the magic of local folk music and will teach you the most popular Greek and Cretan dances step by step. You will join the dancing circle, hold hands with locals, and follow the steps of the dance, enhanced by the rhythm of Greek folk music. 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 learned! All roads lead to a Cretan feast – or “glendi” in Greek - that has it all: dance, Cretan food and lots of punchy wine! Additionally, exclusively on Wednesdays, professional Cretan dancers will perform on stage, where you will have the opportunity to join them for a night of dancing!

  • This was a very fun evening! Tina at Greeking.me suggested this experience for our family of 4 and it was really cool to see the kids trying to learn the steps of greek dances. Dinner was also excellent!

  • The whole experience was amazing from the right beginning, when our driver Kosta met us at our hotel reception. When we arrived at the village we couldn't believe how lucky we were - the dance lesson was a great experience. We also loved the food - highly recommended.
