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.

  • 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.
