Zeibekiko (Greek: Ζεϊμπέκικο) is a Greek folk dance. The name of the dance comnes from the Zeibek warriors of Anatolia. It is danced by one person only and is of free choreographic structure. In older times if a second dancer got up to dance, it would be a cause for conflict and possible violence. However, in the 21st century a certain dance etiquette has evolved, so that other men wait to take turn after and if the dancer stops. Traditionally, applause was not sought nor commonly given, out of respect. This did not, however, lessen creativity, with dancers performing feats such as standing on a glass of wine or a chair or fireplace, or picking up a table, adding a sense of little braggadocio and humor.
