Dance was part of almost every aspect of ancient Greek life, as it accompanied rites of passage, religious and military activity and of course music! Unsurprisingly children were educated in dance from a young age. This selection of artefacts chosen from the Ure Museum helps us think about how this education prepared the ancient Greeks for a life of dance.
