Lerikos (1st G) – Greece

For the Lerikos danced in International Folk Dance groups, see Lerikos (2nd Generation)

Lerikos, also called Issos

This dance, a version of the Taproot Dance, is common on Leros, Kalymnos, and other Dodecanese Islands.  It’s mostly a performance dance now, but the last version is “village”, making it a Living dance.  Some versions (including the “village”) speed up at the end.
