I feel like (Greek) dancing at the Windmill Hotel – video

February 14, 2011 by  

Sometimes when the February days are grey, you need some sunshine to look forward to and I’m dreaming of some Greek dancing on my next visit to see my sister on the Greek island of Zakynthos.

Greek dancing at the Windmill Hotel, Argassi, Zante

Greek dancing at the Windmill Hotel, Argassi, Zante

At the Windmill Hotel in Argassi, there’s a Greek night every week when my Greek brother in law, Denis cooks enormous quantities of ribs and chicken legs over the charcoal BBQ. The Greek folk dancers lay on a show that includes all the old favourite tunes (you’ll know them all if you’ve ever been on holiday to Greece), ending with dancing in a ring of fire (don’t try this at home)

Although we’ve seen the Greek night practically every year, it never fails to get us in the holiday mood as they get the guests up and dancing, teaching them the steps and leading them in a long line around the swimming pool. Yes, Yes, I know it’s cheesy but these are the happy memories that you bring back from your week in the sun, the memories of dad making a fool of himself and big sis flirting with the handsome Greek waiter.

When I get there in May, I may have to restrain myself from dancing around the swimming pool…

    I’ve never been to the Greek Islands. Watching the dancing would be fun. What a fun memory for you.

    I recall going to the Greek Isles once many years ago and also dancing madly (though I dislike dancing). Happily it wasn’t recorded on video!!!

    I absolutely love dancing and for some reason I always get picked from a crowd of onlookers to participate! This looks like lots of fun – makes me want to move Greece up on my destination list 🙂

    It’s like dinner theater – I love it! Learning local dancing is one of my favorite things to do. When I was in Greece I didn’t get the opportunity to do it – looks like I may have to go back. Darn.
