Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Tapeinos Horos is a traditional Greek dance.The word tapeinos in Greek means "humble," so in many villages in Thrace, this dance is done with slow, humble steps. The dance is made up of 6 steps to the right and 4 steps to the left, but moving back, the arms swing forward back.The biggest part of Thrace is part of present-day Bulgaria. In Turkey, it is also called Rumelia. The name comes from the Thracians, an ancient Indo-European people inhabiting Southeastern Europe, The historical boundaries of Thrace have varied. Noteworthy is the fact that, at an early date, the ancient Greeks employed the term "Thrace" to refer to all of the territory which lay north of Thessaly inhabited by the Thracians, a region which "had no definite boundaries" and to which other regions (like Macedonia and even Scythia) were added.show more
