Akropoditi Dancetheatre

Akropoditi: on tiptoes, softly, silently, carefully but also boldly, above and beyond the fragility of the limits

The Akropoditi Dancetheatre was established in Syros in 2004, on the initiative of Angeliki Sigourou, and since 2005 it has been operating as a Civil Non-Profit Company.
