Hi. I live in Australia and I just gave up greek dancing. I didnt like my teacher. It was fun and easy tho, but i hated the costumes.

ive been doing dances from the south for most of my life, stuff like kalamatiano, levendiko, mantilatos, tsamiko and also stuff from sterea ellada and thrace. Most recently though i joined a dance group and have begun to do dances from macedonia and pontos too (like kots, dipat, letsina etc.) How about u?

I've never done greek dancing, but I think it would be nice to try. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who does it.

Hey madlyinlove!
I actually just recently found a great website for what your looking for. It's greekdancing.org and lots of people from all around the world use it. They range from pros to amateurs so you can easily go on there and ask a question about anything related to greek dancing! The format is similar to this website in that you make posts and wait for helpful people to answer your questions. Let me know if you need more info or help!
Happy Dancing!
