Sardana is the official dance of Catalonia.

Legend has it came from the Greek region of Sardis via sailors in the 1st century.

Plato wrote, The dance, of all the arts, is the one that most influences the soul.

Still greek dance the steps are not well documented.

To add to the problem Greek culture is eclectic.

 (So entwined with art and sciences of other cultures its hard to isolate it in its purest forms.)

 Here is my favorite observation about greek multiculturalism.  

 In the story of Archimedes  (287 BC –  212 BC)

The Greek scholar yelled Eureka when he stepped into a bath and noticed that the water level rose. 

 He suddenly understood the concept of density and solved the seemingly impossible problem of knowing if a crown was made of pure gold without even having to scratch it.

 Archimedes then ran through the streets of Syracuse yelling Eureka.

Vitruvius first wrote down the story and had no idea what Eureka meant. 

To this day no one has ventured a guess to its meaning.

Why? because most lack multiculture exposure.

But Dositheus a Jewish friend to whom Archimedes wrote many letters could have told us what it meant.

Eureka is the hebrew pronunciation of Jericho.

A city needed to be conquered with seemingly impenitrible walls.

 The solution brought down the walls without having to ram anything in to them.

Without even having to scratch them!
