A dance workshop on “Dance modes of Greece and Anatolia”
GENRES OF REBETIKA [Part 2]: Hasapikos, Hasapaservikos & Fast

dances, and will be shown how to join various step patterns together in each
genre. We will work with improvisation in each dance.
We hope also to run a second workshop:
Review of DANCE GENRES OF REBETIKA [Part 1]: Zeybekiko, Karsilamas, and Aptalikos – material covered at the Hydra Conference 2003.
