A Greek dance from the island of Nyssiros. I learnt this from Cindy Kelly and Adrian Pointon in 2007.


The music is in an even 4/4 rhythm.


Start in a line, arms in a very close W hold with elbows linked, facing centre.

Take three slow steps back, starting with the right.

Take a step back with the left, then quickly replace the right.

Take one slow step forward with the left.

Step to the side with the right, then quickly close with the left.

The dance can start at the beginning of any musical phrase. You can start with the singing but that gives a very long introduction.


Sorry, I have no information about the music.
