Greek folk dance group ‘Melisses was founded in September 2002 in Merelbeke by Josette Van der Veken. This way East Flanders finally got his own Greek folk dance group. After a timid start from September 2004 ‘Melisses‘ had more members dancing under the leadership of the Greek dance teacher Xristos. “Melisses” is now able to perform at Greek nights with Greek dancing demonstrations. In Greece, the dance is still passed on from generation to generation. There is no meeting complete without a spontaneous dance happening. There are over 300 different dances known. We bring dances from different areas of both the mainland and the islands. After a few lessons you can join several steps in Greek restaurants and at parties.
Our aim is therefore to bring about Greek dancing and enjoying leisure.
