Dance festival

In 2013 the Cultural Association of Glossa organized the First Festival of Traditional Dances with the guidance of Diamantis Palaiologos, a great dance teacher but also beloved principal of the Glossa High School. Since the response from island’s community, friends, families and local and international dancers and folk groups was magnificent, the small celebration tended to be the biggest festival of Aegean. And indeed, on August 23-26 2015, more than 600 dancers from all around Greece, Cyprus but also Nepal (!) shared their passion for culture and dance at the 3rd Folklore Dance Festival, spreading fun and entertainment to an audience that exceeded the 3000 viewers.

The 4th festival (August 27-29 2016) took place on the island under the auspices of the Municipality of Skopelos and the National Commission of UNESCO. While the spirit of Diamantis Palaiologos continues to inspire, more melodic and exciting days are expected on, during the celebrations of the 8th Folklore Dance Festival on August 2020!
