Karen Blackburn Dance Academy

Classical Greek

Classical Greek. This dance form comes from Ancient Greece and is based upon the natural movements of the body. The movements are expressive and range from not only lyrical dance but also pyrrhic, bacchic, choric, ritual, tragic and dynamic athletic sequences. Dancers perform barefoot, wearing tunics and often use props such as scarves, ribbons or bows.

This form of movement provides a wonderful opportunity for expression & creativity. The student also develops musical understanding along with balance, strength & control, relaxation, flexibility through the spine and elevation. The more advanced work allows for a greater study of the visual arts, literature and mythology and develops the various different aspects of this work provide a great source of enjoyment for those who study this wonderful dance form.
