"Sirtaki dance was an ancient Greek"

Sirtaki was created in 1964 for the film Zorba the Greek, since the original steps of Greek folk dances were too difficult for the protagonist of Anthony Quinn (1915-2001). It is still related to the ancient Greek dances as Sirte and Hasapikos. The soundtrack for Zorba the Greek and Ancient Sirtaki was made by Mikis Theodorakis (born 1925) - renowned composer and fighter of the Resistance.
