If there is one Greek dance that is known all over the world and loved by millions of, it is, of course, the Syrtaki. And it is under the Acropolis.
The internet is full of videos of the Syrtaki, but a recent one featuring a troupe of elegant dancers performing in front of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus plus mesmerizing aerial photos of the Acropolis Hill has gone viral.
The dance and music that for many epitomizes Greece was popularized by the Oscar-winning film Zorba the Greek, based on the Nikos Kazantzakis novel.
Most tourists who visit Greece want to experience the feeling created by the song and the dance in the place it was conceived, by the great composer Mikis Theodorakis.
