Discovering the various types of dance!
Discovering the tradition, the rythms and the various types of dance! The Greek way of entertaining! Students and teachers, we had a great time! Thank you so much Χορόδεντρο! Greek dance (horos) is a very old tradition, being referred to by authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Each region formed its own choreography and style to fit in with their own ways. There are over 10,000 traditional dances that come from all regions of Greece. There are also some dances, which have been adopted throughout the Greek world. These include the syrtos, the hasapiko and the hasaposerviko. Traditional Greek dancing has a primarily social function. It brings the community together at key points of the year, such as Easter, the grape harvest or patronal festivals; and at key points in the lives of individuals and families, such as weddings. We learn together the Greek culture and the Greek tradition! Be part of our school! Gepostet von Peek at Greek am Donnerstag, 1. August 2019
Walking through the history of Thessaloniki…
Walking with Dot2dot through the history of Thessaloniki, discussing all the secrets of our city is always a pleasure for students and teachers too! The Arch of Galerius, better known as the Kamara, is located at the junction of Egnatia and Gounari street further up Navarinou Square. The quadruple arch was part of the large building complex which included the Galerius Palace, the Hippodrome and the Rotunda. It was built at the end of the 3rd century or early 4th to honour the victories of the Emperor Galerius against the Persians in Asia Minor and Syria.

Visiting Rotonda it’s not just another cultural activity. It’s a journey through the multicultural past. It’s always a chance to teach Greek. It’s a cool and enjoyable stop when you drift into the city during the summer, as well The Rotunda, built in the early 4th century, is an ancient impressive roman monument inscribed in the World Heritage List of Unesco. Maybe it was first constructed as a mausoleum for the Emperor Galerius, who had his seat at Thessaloniki at the end of the 3rd century and the beginning of the 4th. It was part of the impressive building complex which included the Galerius Palace (Navarinou Square), the Hippodrome, the Arch of Galerius (Kamara) and other buildings in Thessaloniki. In the end of the 4th century, the Emperor Theodosius the Great (379-395), was baptised as Christian in Thessaloniki and converted the mausoleum into a Christian church. During the Turkish occupation, it was turned into a mosque and the minaret, which stands in front of it, was built (1591). Τhe name Rotunda prevailed due to the cylindrical shape of the monument.

We love to explain the present time by talking for the multicultural past. We combine our love of language with our love for every element of our history and culture!
Said about us
I’m not sure how to succinctly say all of the wonderful things I would like to express about this language school and its teachers – but I am so grateful to have found them and to now consider them friends! Thank you Peek at Greek!
They clearly have a passion for linguistics, and don’t just teach you vocabulary but truly facilitate a deep understanding of the language and the country. They are intentional about connecting people and respecting the different traditions of Greece while also welcoming newcomers and honoring diversity and global perspectives.
The lessons were perfectly tailored to our wants, needs and level.
