“Dance. Did you say, dance?”- Zorba

In 1982, at the initiative of the International Dance Committee, April 29th was proclaimed by UNESCO as International Dance Day.

The art of dance allows to communicate through the expression of the body, feelings, moments, situations, and most importantly, it allows to show the world its roots, its traditions, its essence.

To celebrate International Dance Day, we share a throwback of a yiayia (grandmother) dancing an amazing Tsamiko filled with heart and soul at a Pascha Panygiri (festival) in Nafpaktos in 2019, proving that age is definitely just a number!

At first, Yiayia danced with her walking stick then she put it down and danced in the front of the line, while also singing her heart out.

 

Happy International Dance Day 2021!
