Sousta is one of the most common Greek dances. It originated from Crete, but is popular throughout Greece and Balkans. The music is generally played with a lyre, laouto, and mandolin. There are elements of eroticism and courtship why it became romantic dance which involves a male and a female dancer. Nowadays, it is used as a row dance, especially in Greek dancing where a leader performs complex moves and the rest of the crowd follows.

Orthodoxy is more than a lifestyle, more than a philosophy, more than a political theory or an ethical system. The Orthodox faith is a way of being.
