Greek Girl Sends Internet Wild with Zeibekiko Dance (video)



A young Greek girl has stunned a crowd of tourists and local people by performing an amazing Greek dance called the zeibekiko on the island of Kastellorizo.

The scene, captured by Cibele Almeida, a visitor to the island, had gone viral on Facebook.

The young girl is seen executing the dance, traditionally performed by adult males, with astonishing vigor.

It is difficult to dance the zeibekiko, mainly because it has no set steps, no particular rhythm. It mostly consists of improvised movements.

It requires an inner intensity, because it is an improvised dance that expresses the feelings of the individual who performs it.

Due to the movements of the dancer, it is sometimes known as the ‘eagle dance’.
