English Dance Group at the Agios Yorgos Celebrations 23rd April 2012

We had Greek dance lessons with Yorgos Bellos from Taverna Panselinos, who taught a group of non-Greek people a number of dances.  He told us we were dancing at the Agios Yorgos (St. George's) day celebrations, we weren't asked, but we agreed the 4 dances with Yorgos and were happy with the choices we made.  You can spot Dave as he is the only male in the line-up and Gerry is immediately to his left.  We were all absolutely shaking before we started but at the end felt that we had aquitted ourselves well.  We had a fantastic reaction from the Greek people watching us dance.
