Tripodhis,Kukuvicka, and the Greek Seminar

Bill has taught the Greek Dance ” Tripodhis” that he learned at the dance seminar we attended in Greece this past summer. Sue C. noticed that it sounded very similar to the Bulgarian dance we do “Kukuvicka “. You can listen to a version of “Kukuvicka” at http://www.dunav.org.il/balkan_music_bulgarian.html#all .

The dance “Tripodhis” is done to the song “Bati kuritsia stu churo”. Neither one could be found online. Sorry! If you find them, please let me know.

Anyone looking for a great dance vacation check out the 13th Annual Seminar with a great teacher Kyriakos Moididis! The 12th was fantastic!
