Attica Folklore & Cultural Association «Polydendri» is a Greek folklore, music and dance group. It consists of 200 members. The dancers are amateurs, aged 7 to 50 and we have many groups (from children’s to elderly people’s groups).

 

The Cultural Association is Member of the International Dance Council (CID)-UNESCO and it is represented in folk dance festivals by a superb traditional dance group, which every year performs in different places in Greece and abroad.

It is a mixed group of about 30 persons (adults), dancers and musicians, which performs excellent Greek dances of Attica and all the geographical regions of Greece, with the appropriate traditional costumes. We have also children dance groups, as well as elderly people dance groups.

 

Recently, it took part at Mesolloggi Aitoloakarnanias, island of Spetses, island of Salamina, Athens, Varna of Boulgaria, Tenerife-Spain, Sardegna’s (Italy) Folk Mediterranean Festival, Nice’s (France) International Folk Festival, Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt), where received the best comments.

Much of the group's work has been broadcasted on Greek (channel Alpha) television in musical and traditional programs or special interviews.

 

The Cultural Association is specialized in presenting the Greek traditional wedding and organizing seminars concerning the Greek culture.

 

 In addition, every September the Polydendri’s dance team holds a traditional celebration in Polydendri during which various dance groups from all over Greece and other countries as well, present their traditional music and dances.

The teacher of the team is Mr Yiannis Gantzias, who has been educated at the Athens University and has a high teaching experience in the Greek dances and music.

P.S. Attica Folklore & Cultural Association «Polydendri» belongs to the Community of Polydendri in the prefecture of Attica, Greece.

Polydendri is a small, quiet suburb near Athens. It's only 30 Km away from the capital of Greece: Athens and combines the peaceful village way of living with the easy and fast access to the city center.

It's an all-green, picturesque village built on a hill with a panoramic view and another important advantage: It's really close (about 13 Km) to three of the cleanest beaches of Attica namely " Agioi Apostoloi"," Oropos " and " Varnavas".
