The Cultural Workshop Ayion Omologiton provides us with information, guidance and expertise regarding Cypriot Folk dances. Their dancers have been the first to join this initiative.
The Cultural Dance Club Dionysos was founded in 1991 and today has a core group of 60 active dancers and 200 dance students. Its main focus is in the preservation and dissemination of the musical and dancing heritage, both of Cyprus and of the rest of Hellenism. The Association maintains a close collaboration with a diverse group of music and dance heritage specialists, researchers, performers and folklorists. Through its continuous research, collection, recording and processing of folklore music and dance materials, the Association has established a remarkable wardrobe of numerous Cypriot and Greek traditional costumes and maintains an important archive of relevant films and photographs, as well as a library of folk themes. These resources are essential for further research, preservation and understanding of the music and dance intangible cultural heritage of Cyprus.
