In a small village of Kassandra, we have created "Once upon a time", with much artistic feeling and love for children and man, tradition, nature and life... "Once upon a time... Means holidays and relaxation! Entertainment and action! Daring and adventure! A live fairytale-like reality...
In a ravine where holly, myrtles, arbutuses rove their braches. At a place where nightingales compose their musical symphonies In a valley whose boundaries are set by pine clad mountainsides.
Near the unique natural spring of Kassandra "Patatlaka", where gurgling waters spring from the heart of the mountain ...at a place with a climate that can be compared to no other. At New Skioni, located at the peninsula of Kassandra in the prefecture of Halkidiki, only 1 km from the northeastern part of the picturesque village. All tradition gathered in this valley which seems as if untouched by time; however you will discover that time here is never enough if you want to see everything.
With the initiative of Dimitra Papachristodoulou - Gogakou, educator by profession, who wanted to give sound principles to her children - pupils and dreamt of a live folklore workshop, we created "Once upon a time..." with much artistic feeling and love for children and man, tradition nature and life.
At its live folklore workshops you will see nature, man, animals in an interdependent harmonic and balanced relationship.

12th Seminar of Greek Dance with Kyriakos

For twelve consecutive years Kyriakos has been organizing his summer “Seminar of Greek Traditional Dance” in Greece. This time, the twelfth seminar, is dedicated to the region of Thessaloniki, a region where many different folk traditions exist side by side reflecting the variety of ethno-cultural groups found in the area. Older native inhabitants (locals, Vlachs, Saraktsans) are complemented by the refugee settlers (Pontians, Thracians, Cappadocians, Anatolians) enriching this impressive mosaic.
The seminar will be organized to present these traditions in two differing formats. The first four days, the seminar participants will take part in workshops on the island of Ammouliani, Chalkidiki with the participation of ten select and well known dance troupes and accompanying locals in a Festival of Tradition. Each evening 3 - 4 groups will present songs and dances from specific regions followed by a “glendi” with live music representing these same regions. During the days various teachers and specialists will offer classes in dance, song, traditional dress from which the seminar participants will be allowed to freely choose. Exhibits of local dress will be set up along with other relevant activities.
On the 4th of July the participants will be transferred by bus to Perea, Thessaloniki for the remainder of the seminar July 4 – 12.
Each day will be dedicated to a different village of the Thessaloniki region. Mornings will consist of dance classes and an introduction to native traditions of the specific village conducted either by Kyriakos or the local representative teacher while the evenings will consist of a visit to the same village for the opportunity of experiencing dance and hospitality with the locals.
Our first “glendi” will take place in Perea itself alongside local performers and villagers while a larger “glendi” will be organized with the participation of well known dance troupes from Thessaloniki to take place at the city’s sea side by the statue of Alexander the Great close to the White Tower (the city’s symbol).
Visits to important sites and museums will be organized as well. And each day there will be enough free time for the individual to rest, relax, shop or whatever.
All “glendia” will be accompanied by live music while special buses will provide travel to and from the various villages. The seminar price includes breakfast and dinner; an educational packet with information about the dances, songs , customs and costumes to be presented and taught; maps and useful information; seminar T-shirt and of course a CD with the music for all the dances.
Ammouliani is the small island just off Chalkidiki between the second and third “fingers”, opposite Mt. Athos. It has one village and offers beautiful beaches and coastlines. Perea is the first village one encounters past Thessaloniki’s airport and is built on the coast with a view of the city and Mt. Olympus. Accommodations in Ammouliani will be provided by the “Sunrise Hotel” and in Perea by the “Xenia Hotel”
The number of participants will be limited and requires the on time down payment (deposit) of 200 Euros as a declaration of intent. This declaration must be received no later than June 10, 2011 and is contingent upon the availability of spaces. The total cost of the seminar (classes, parties, accommodations, etc) is 1050 Euros for a double room and 1300 Euros for a single room. The cost for those not full time, i.e. those not wanting to take the classes, is 750 Euros.
Kyriakos Moisidis was born in 1968 in Prohoma, Thessaloniki. He studied Business Administration at the University of Macedonia and Physical Education and Athletics with a major in traditional Greek dance at the Aristotle University, both in Thessaloniki. Kyriakos has been studying traditional dances for 27 years and teaching for the past 25 years. Currently he teaches traditional dance at the University of Macedonia in the Department of Music Science and Art. As well, he teaches for three Thessaloniki based dance troupes and at many seminars both in Greece and abroad. This will be the twelfth annual “Seminar of Greek Dance” organized by Kyriakos.

Dance, music, tradition : the Naxos 2011 seminar, festival & workshop

12 exceptional days in a paradise on earth: a unique course/festival, in Greece in the summer of 2011: dance, music, tradition, celebration…

Imagine, dream, come on a journey...
Imagine a Greek island set in an eternal archipelago, with its roots, its history, its memories and its timeless nature based in antiquity and mythology.

Imagine at the same time, an island that is festive, full of joy, bursting with life and extraordinarily hospitable.

Imagine a Greek island that is neither too large to remain on a human scale, nor too small to offer you richness, variety and the pleasure of making new discoveries every day.

Imagine an unspoilt island, which has preserved all of its tradition: music, dance, festivals, and the magic of every moment...

Imagine an island consisting of a succession of white walled villages, unchanged for centuries.
An island that is fertile and verdant, with more than 400 Byzantine churches, with windmills, Roman and ancient remains, towers and castles from the Venetian era, olive oil presses and donkey tracks winding over the hills…

Imagine extraordinarily beautiful music, with the sound of the violin and the lauoto surging like the waves of the Aegean Sea, warming your heart with the strength of a meltem wind.

Imagine splendid scenery, that will take your breath away: lush valleys of olive trees and vines, brown cliffs fringed with hidden creeks, small fishing ports teased by the sea breezes, sun-baked hills where the air is filled with the fragrant perfumes of Mediterranean plants and shady terraces lulled by gentle evening music..

Imagine a population of shepherds, peasant farmers, wine growers, herbalists and bee-keepers, who share their simple and wonderful daily life with you.

Imagine 12 days and 13 nights in summer, in this magical paradise on earth, this well kept secret, this garden untouched by time, set between sky, land and sea.

Imagine dance lessons in the villages, led by teachers from the island and in the company of the villagers, there with you, happy to welcome you and share their island with you.

Imagine breaks from these lessons where the islanders share their wine, their raki and homemade cheese with you, or the sun-gorged fruit from their orchards.

Imagine visiting a different village every day with a local guide, chancing upon forgotten crafts, a weaver's studio, an old ironsmith or a herbalist who shares the scents of the hillsides with you, a bakery with a wood fired oven, or a wonderful little church smelling of incense.

Imagine hotel 20 metres away from the sea: your hotel, with only the sound of the waves and the infinite blue of the Aegean, restoring your spirit, every morning and evening.

Imagine a lively, jovial and colourful dinner, in a different inn every evening, with superb home cooking, and an evening party with the musicians from the village, and dancing, dancing, dancing…

Imagine these magical, wonderful 12 days and 13 nights: more than a course, more than a seminar, more than a festival and much more than just a holiday: sharing an unforgettable and extraordinary experience with the islanders, the villagers, all the Greeks of the island…

For this island exists, and Kazantzakis, the greatest Greek writer of all time (Alexis Zorba, Letter to El Greco, etc) said and wrote about this island where he lived that it was a paradise on earth, THE Paradise on Earth.

This island where Zeus (Jupiter) grew up, before going to live on Mount Olympus.
This island where Dionysus (Bacchus) lived, the god of love, celebration and the headiness of life, love and wine…

This island, blest by the Gods, is waiting to welcome you with outstretched arms, hands and heart… with the glass of friendship: Naxos. Ya sou Naxo!

Come and sample this paradise, from 19th July to 1st August: the Nisiotis cultural association offers a unique course/festival, with the active participation of our Naxos friends, who will also be your friends: during a drink, a dance, a meal, a stroll, the summer and perhaps for the rest of your life.

For the island of your dreams, the island where every day brings new treasures, really exists: all you have to do is come and experience it, live it and share it with its inhabitants who are so close and so welcoming.

Here is the presentation of the 12 day course/festival:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MqrgoUhf1k

And here is a presentation of the island of Naxos:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laCCbX_7dz4

A whole community is getting ready to organise and host this event, and to welcome you: dancers, teachers, musicians, inn keepers, hotel keepers, etc.
There is our friend Antonis, deputy mayor of Naxos and the Little Cyclades.
And Katerina, president of the cultural association of the villages of the island.
And then there is Apostolis, who has carried out unparalleled research into the music and dance of the 30 Cyclades islands.
Not forgetting, Christos, Dimitris, Gabrilis, Giorgos, Kostas, Manolis, Marina, Mihalis, Panayota, Stamatis, Stephanos, Vangelis, Zoï, and many others.

Our programme, your programme every day:
- A hearty buffet breakfast, with local produce. Greek yoghourt, honey from the nearby hills, spice cake straight out of the oven, feta cheese, fruit from the garden, herbal teas made from plants grown on the island, etc
- Dance lessons in the morning, with breaks to catch your breath
- Free time from 1pm to 4 pm for bathing, resting, walking, eating barbecued fish in the port, etc: a moment just for you, when you can take it easy.
- After that there is a guided tour of a village, a different one every day, and a dance lesson in the village.
- Every evening there is a group dinner based on the rich gastronomic traditions of the island: stuffed vegetables, golden gratins, grilled goat or lamb, herb infused ragouts and kebabs cooked over a wood fire...
- And then a party, with dance and music.
