Greek Macedonian Dance with Yannis Konstantinou

  Friday , Mar 25, 2005         8:00 PM

Event Details

Yannis Konstantinou from Florina, Greece teaches traditional dances from Western Macedonia. Yannis is a very well-known as a teacher of Greek Macedonian dance and culture throughout Greece and Europe… and among those North Americans who have had the good fortune to experience the dance seminars he organizes annually in Agios Germanos, overlooking Lake Prespa. Yannis' passion for traditional music and dance began in his childhood, dancing with his family in his parents' villages of Alona and Akrites in the Florina region of Greece. To this day, this grounding is evident in his teaching philosophy and dance style, both of which pay homage to the locals with whom he has danced at "panigiria", weddings, and fests; who are a continual source of knowledge and inspiration; and who fuel his deep commitment to preserving and sharing the rich traditions of the region.

After the dance instruction, Edessa and Christos Govetas will play for dancing.
