The Sirtaki has been THE coolest Greek dance ever since Zorba and Basil showed the world how to get down in the 1964 film Zorba the Greek. Although traditionally performed as a Greek folkdance, these 11 classic dance moves can be put to any music, and we highly suggest busting them out and impressing the masses during your Friday night shenanigans.
The Coat Throw
This is how you let everyone know you mean business, and it’s about to go down on the dancefloor.
You’ve always gotta start with one hand and work your way up to two.
Lunge and Snap
Even more effective than the ‘Bend and Snap’ at attracting potential suitors.
Kick it in Reverse
Sometimes you’ve just gotta back it up like there’s sand in your shoes.
Like an oblique work out, but so much sexier.
Snap and Groove
Groove like your favourite Beyoncé song just came on, sweaty pits not required.
Slap the Ground
Because dropping it low should always end in a celebration.
Nothing is hotter than fast feet.
Side Hop Don't Stop
This is what JLo would look like if she were dancing on hot coals.
Back it up with your hands in the air like you just don’t care.
The 'Come to Zorba'
When you’ve locked eyes with your soulmate on the other side of the club, bust out this move.
