Exploring the Rich Heritage of Greek Dance in Schools

VG Dance Workshops invites schools to embark on an exciting journey into the vibrant world of Greek dance. Our Greek Dance Workshops offer students an immersive cultural experience, celebrating the traditions, music, and movements that have shaped Greek culture for centuries. Through lively dances, spirited music, and engaging activities, we aim to inspire students and foster a deeper appreciation for the beauty and diversity of Greek dance.

Celebrating Greek Dance Tradition

Greek dance is a reflection of the country's rich history, mythology, and regional diversity. From the lively steps of the Syrtos to the spirited rhythms of the Zorba, Greek dance encompasses a wide range of styles, each with its own unique characteristics and significance. At VG Dance Workshops, we delve into the heart of Greek dance, exploring its history, cultural significance, and regional variations with students.

Benefits of Greek Dance Workshops in Schools

  • Cultural Immersion: Our workshops provide students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in Greek culture, learning about the traditions, costumes, and music associated with Greek dance.

  • Physical Activity: Greek dance is a dynamic and energetic form of exercise that promotes physical fitness, coordination, and rhythm while providing students with a fun and enjoyable way to stay active.

  • Cultural Awareness: By exploring Greek dance, students develop a deeper understanding of cultural diversity and appreciation for the traditions and customs of different societies.

  • Team Building: Greek dance is often performed in groups, encouraging students to work together as a team to learn choreographed routines and synchronise their movements with others.


Our Approach to Greek Dance Workshops


At VG Dance Workshops, we teach Greek dance hands-on, providing students with practical instruction, historical context, and cultural insights. Our experienced instructors guide students through dance routines, incorporating traditional steps, gestures, and music to create an authentic and immersive learning experience.


Enhancing School Curriculums and Cultural Awareness 

Our Greek Dance Workshops align with school curriculums and promote cultural awareness by introducing students to the rich traditions and heritage of Greek dance. By exploring the historical, social, and cultural context of Greek dance, we help students develop a deeper appreciation for the diversity of world cultures and the importance of cultural preservation.

School Assemblies and Showcases

Our dance workshops can be integrated into school assemblies and showcases, allowing students to showcase their newfound skills and talents to their peers, teachers, and parents. These events create a sense of pride and achievement within the school community, fostering a spirit of creativity and collaboration.




We had the pleasure of Vivian visiting our school to deliver a multicultural week of workshops to our infant's school children, nursery to year two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Vivian was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the events and the styles of dancing. We were so impressed with Vivian, that we then booked another workshop in the same term. Vivian, upon his return, again was outstanding. The children were very lucky to have been taught by Vivian.
