The Neighbor’s Dance

Sirtaki is the traditional dance of the Aegean culture, which is very close to us, but basically our neighbor Greece. The Hasapiko Argo dance played in Istanbul during the Byzantine period formed the basis of Sirtaki. The word "Sirto" is also the name of another Greek dance, and in Greek it has become Sirtaki by adding the suffix -aki, which is used for diminutive and cute. Hasapiko Argo is actually a slow dance type that begins and ends with the same rhythm. This dance style emerged and developed among butcher guilds around Fener and Balat districts of Istanbul. Sirtaki is a dance type that starts with Hasapiko Argo but gets faster and more enjoyable to watch. Sirtaki, also known as butcher's dance, should be learned by those who want to get to know the Greek culture.

Sirtaki is basically a dance type that starts with slow and clumsy movements, gets faster and more active. Sirtaki music is based on a 2/4 meter and ends with a 4/4 meter. In addition, it would not be wrong to say that the dance is shaped according to the measure of the music. In the Sirtaki course, the basic movements and steps and transitions are taught at the beginning.
While playing Sirtaki, a traditional instrument called "Bouzouki" is used. First of all, we move to the halay position, which is also included in our culture. It progresses slowly by taking steps to the right and left.
