Cyprus is home to some of the oldest dances in the Greek world. Men and women almost always dance separately, and often in couples facing each other, as in the Antikristi. Cyprus was famed for its weaving and embroidery, and two of the women's dances reflect this in the use of the hands to mimic sewing. Whilst the women dance demurely the men are more lively and showy; their dances include Zeimbekikos Aptalikos, Zeimbekikos Koftos, and Syrtos.
