On Friday 6 July 2018 at 19.00, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) turns into a huge folk Greek music dance floor, where the past meets the present while the Lyceum of Greek Women get off the stage and share a treasure trove of heritage in four different SNFCC outdoor areas.
No less than 400 dancers will spread out across the Agora, Visitors Center, Water Jets and Great Lawn, dancing over 70 different folk dances from various regions of Greece while showcasing local costumes; at the peak of the event, visitors and dancers will join in a circle of Greek dancing, setting up a real country fair on the Great Lawn.
Moreover, in the Book Tower between 19.00-19.45, visitors will have the opportunity to attend the painstaking process of wearing sophisticated costumes from the extensive Lyceum of Greek Women costume collection.
