CLUB OF RESEARCH AND SPREAD OF CRETAN TRADITION “IDAIA GI”

Our club was founded in 2009 in Thessaloniki by a group of young people (some of
them children of cretan people and some not) who share their love and passion for
traditional dances. The need and support of people living in northern Greece for the
existence of a club that will be more involved in the research and the spread of cretan
traditional dances, music and costumes as they actually existed in earlier times, helped
in a great deal the consolidation of the club in the cultural events of Thessaloniki and
Macedonia.

The constitutional purpose of the club of “IDAIA GI” is the preservation of the
cultural heritage of Crete, the preservation and spread of its traditions, the revival of
the moral standards and folklore culture of the island. This purpose is pursued by the
research and gathering of dances and songs from Crete, by the dance group that is
focused on learning and presenting cretan dances and songs as well as the
organization of dance performances, music concerts and other intellectual, artistic and
cultural events, sometimes working together with other similar clubs or organizations.
The club aspires to publish books and informative magazines, to organise meetings,
lectures and seminars by experts, to host exhibitions of photos, artworks of cretan
folklore art and recreational projections.

In the first three years “Idaia Gi” has taken part in several social, cultural and charity
events in northern Greece. The club has co-organised cultural festivities with other
cultural organizations. We have also organized seminars given by experienced
teachers-researchers of cretan traditional dances. And of course, from the beginning
there are classes of cretan dances, in which the club tries to convey to the people the
way the cretans actually used to dance; thus taking into consideration the differences
in the different prefectures in Crete (Chania, Rethimno, Iraklion, Lasithi) and
emphasizing on the ethos of the dancers, hence the manners and customs of Cretans.
