We went there in September and had a good evening, it was the best experience in Athens and certainly the dances were not as passionate or remarkable as the flamenco for example , but it was good.

This is the living Theatre of Greek dance. Every two weeks the show changes where you will see traditional costumes and dance from all corners of Greece. The live music adds to a magical evening that you will not forget.

We really enjoyed the dance show especially due to the beautiful costumes the dancers was wearing! During the show you see dances from different parts of Greece. Some of the dances was a bit long-drawn-out but over all we really enjoyed the show!

Completely recommended. The setting is beautiful, the dancers and musicians are very professional, the costumes are beautiful. In 90 minutes you learn so much. It is really a very high quality.

Dora Stratou is a historical theatre located at a perfect place. Near Acropolis, among trees, a person can enjoy a show of top Greek dancers, in a concept realistic. Price is fine, nobody should miss it.
