Live in Athens the capital of Greece, a modern, safe and lively European city. Its history goes back to 3,200 B.C. Athens had been the Centre of Knowledge, Philosophy and Arts (music, dance, sculpture, ancient drama, architecture, poetry) and the birthplace of Democracy. It is the city where Socrates, Plato, Phidias, Terpander, Pericles and Goddess Athena have lived. The Parthenon, one of the most famous architectural wonders of the world sticks out in the center of the city on the Acropolis rock.
Love the art of Contemporary Dance, which might be slow in established as type of dance in Greece, but the Ancient Greek Civilization was the reason to be born and developed across the country’s borders. Ιsadora Duncan (rapporteur of contemporary dance) was the person in favor of its revival, at the beginning of the 20th century, being inspired by female dancers depicted on Ancient Greek vases, as well as influenced by the Ancient Greek perception about freedom of artistic expression in dancing, not obeying in rules and norms.
