If you haven't caught the Figoura performance division dancers live, then this may be your opportunity, as we dance around the world on the 29th October 2017 at Cecil Sharp House, Camden Town, London.  

 

We shall be representing and promoting Greek traditional dances and culture at the seventeenth annual Dance Around The World Festival of World Dance.  This is the first time Figoura will be dancing at this annual festival event and we would love to see you all there, clapping, smiling, and above all, supporting our dancers.

 

The Figoura performing group has been specialising in Cretan dances over the last 2 years and is attracting an ever increasing number of dancers as it goes from strength to strength.

When and Where?

Cretan performance : 12:40pm and will last 20 mins (Don't be late or you'll miss it!)

Dance Around The World is a community festival which celebrates traditional dance cultures from all over the world.

 

 

Visitors to the event will be able to watch and try for themselves traditional dance forms from all over the world. They will be able to choose from styles as varied as Flamenco, Indian, Caribbean, South East European, Tango, Maori and of course Figoura will be there teaching an hour long workshop on Cretan dances, and much, much more!

 

 

The Figoura performance division will be accompanied by the newly formed group Cretan Brioche who will be playing live Cretan music for the performance.  We are thrilled to be working with them at this event.

 

We are also joined by Vangelis Gosmanis on Cretan Lyra, who has become a huge fan of Figoura as we are of him, and we are extremely proud to have him with us again.

 

For even more details look out for the event on Facebook and add the date and time to your diaries.
