Dancing is a key component of the Greek identity from ancient to contemporary times. Folk dance especially has played a central role in constructing national and ethnic identity in Greece. It has always been a medium of expression in community life such as social gatherings, religious festivities and rites of passage. In its practices we can unpack cultural, political and religious discourses.
I also research dance. I am a member of the Scientific Dance Association Hellas and a member of the scientific committee of their relevant research journal.”
