Ikaria is an island of the East Aegean Sea near the islands Samos, Chios, Mykonos. An island of a unique nature, a fascinating history and living traditions to explore.

The traditional local feasts (“paniyiria”), involve in a remarkable way all generations and still remain the centre of the social and cultural life in Ikaria. Recent research on the high longevity rates of the island (Blue Zones) reveals to the rest of the world what all Ikarians have known for centuries: music, dance and life with strong family and community bonds help you enjoy real life and live longer… IKARIADANCE project aims to connect dance friends from all around the world with the Ikarian values of dance and feast culture.

Our Project in Ikaria is a not for profit project that helps the promotion of the local cultural heritage, cultural tourism as well as important intercultural values based on folk culture experiential learning. For more information about the concept and philosophy of our innovative Project which has been running since 2004, you can read the interview by Christiana Katsarou, the Project's coordinator to
