HAPPY 2022! ...and our 2022 IkariaDance Project news!

 Hello dear friends, 

We wish you that 2022 brings back all that we missed during last year: embraces, hugs, partying and touching each other and dancing with strong hand holds! All this with joyful health! 

Since when we dance, we stay more healthy and joyful, we decided last year, in an extremely difficult time of the year in Ikaria due to the pandemic to organize a "short version" of IkariaDance 2021 with a few friends who made a strong circle of love and music. With our singers and students of Kaiti Koullia the ambiance was even greater and we soon found our old good habits: some wine, some nice discussions from the heart, some wonderful music with our marvelous musicians and ...the souls wanted to dance again in their "natural" setting! Nature is so wise, now we know it well! 

We are thankful to the people that came to Ikaria in summer 2021 in such a hard period for travelling and we are glad we tried to be together. 

With the optimistic feeling that summer 2022 shall be a lot better from a travelling and dancing point of view, hoping that the pandemic shall fade out gradually...we plan to start registrations for IkariaDance 2022. The team plans to be the same, hoping that we have a good number of participants so to be able to invite all dance teachers from all around! Kaiti shall host her singing workshop as all the previous years! And... we hope what all Ikarians hope: to live the experience of the panigiria again!

We really hope that we shall be able to do all these with your help and support and your nice words to our dancing friends around the world. 

Happy dancing 2022!

Christiana and Ikariadance friends

if we find good friends to enjoy wine together
In this place
we make a feast in another way 
and despite the pandemic
we meet in Ikaria"
