Learn some of the old traditional dances, which have vanished from the tradition, such as the “Three Sea Captains”. The Three Sea Captains goes back to the battle of Navarino in 1827, the steps in the dance depict the movement of ships in battle. These dances have almost vanished from our tradition.
