Dancing in Greece

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the ballet recital of my guide. You can see her in the video right dancing in the front and center. The show was not really all ballet. There were all different ages and types of dancing. I saw classical ballet, jazz, modern and traditional.

My guide takes three kinds of lessons after school. She does piano lessons, dancing lessons and swimming lessons. She is busy. I think that is pretty much like what I hear about American kids. I hope that I will be able to show you some of a swimming lesson later... But I may run out of time. On Wednesday I am going to Olympia where the Olympic games were held.

I am also posting a picture and video sent to me from my BFF! One of the things that she does almost every day is take pictures. The picture is of some food she really liked and the video is a parasailer landing nearLake Tahoe. I amlookingforward to posting pictures and embedding video of things you do or see every day. According to the ClusterMap there are people all over the world looking at this. It could be a really fun way to learn about each other.

  1. Hi Janice,
    We enjoyed watching the Greek dancing in the video clip. There are at least 2 Greek Orthodox churches in the Milwaukee area which have festivals in the summer so students had some idea of the culture.

    We were glad to hear that many US Greek restaurants have the same kind of food as people in Greece eat, such as Greek salads.

    We are getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July here in the US so that made us wonder about Greek festivals and holidays:
    What festivals or celebrations do Greek people have?
    What holidays do they celebrate?

    We were also wondering about Greek children:
    What are their schools like?
    What do they study in school?
    What games and sports do they play?

    We are enjoying following you on your adventure in Greece. How long are you staying and where will you and the Professor go next?

    By the way, we were impressed that you asked real archeologists to help you answer our questions about Greece. :-)
