1st Olympus Greek Dance and Culture Seminar 2011

The seminar will be held in Pieria (the land of the ancient Thracian tribe 'Pieres' and the Muses), on the flanks of Mount Olympus, the mythological residence of the ancient Greek pantheon, and close to the coasts of the blue Aegean Sea. The seminar will take place from 19 to 28th August 2011, when most traditional feasts ('glendia' or 'panegyria') take place in the area (including Macedonian, Thracian, Pontian, Vlach and other glendia), as well as famous festivals of traditional 'gaida' (bagpipe), and ancient Greek drama festivals in the theatre of Dion, the sacred town of the ancient Macedonians.

The seminar program will offer courses of traditional Greek dances and customs from different regions (Thrace, Macedonia, Central Greece, Pontus and the Black Sea) as well as lessons in traditional Greek culture, language, music and singing from well-known teachers, researchers and musicians (YANNIS & DIMOS PRANTSIDIS, KYRIAKOS MOISIDIS, ACHILLEAS TSIARAS, YOULI DIMOU, MARIA TSIMITRI, PANAYOTIS PAGONIDIS, VASSILIS GEROVASSILEIOU, LAURA SHANNON, PANOS ZIKIDIS, YANNIS KAKARAS, AND PANAYOTIS PAVLOS).

There will also be special nights of traditional music at the seminar venue or in villages, where we will have the chance to meet and see local people dancing and singing.

Various scenic excursions and cultural tours will give the chance to admire the natural wonders of the sacred Mount Olympus (forests, springs and magnetic fields), the legendary burial place of Orpheus and great examples of ancient Greek civilization, music and technology.

We are expecting you for a unique cultural experience!!!
