Nektarios Forris Assiotis

Nektarios was born in Nicosia. He soon became interested in the Cypriot and Greek dance and music as he was greatly influenced by his close relative Gregori Assioti, who was the founder of the first dance group in Cyprus in 1948. At the age of six he started taking Cypriot and Greek traditional dance lessons. As a member of folkloric groups he performed in events in Cyprus and in festivals abroad and he made appearances in many television shows as well (see below for details). He has been teaching Cypriot folkloric dances (Antikristoi,mantra, Sousta, Sirtos, Stamna, Drepani,zevla and Tatsia [DIPLOMA FROM UNESCO CID]) and Greek dances such as Chasapiko, Sousta, Sirtaki, Kalamatiano, Aptaliko, Kamilieriko, Macedonian, Ikariotiko, Sirto, Nisiotiko, Pentozalis, Tsamiko, Tsifteteli,koullouriwtiko and Zeimpekiko [DIPLOMA FROM UNESCO CID] to students from six until eighty years old! He also teaches Latin dances like Cha-Cha, Jive, Rumba, Samba, Salsa, Bachata, salsa Shine, Merenque, Paso Doble and Tango( DIPLOMAS FROM IDTA).
