Atsiapat (Greek: Άτσιαπατ) is the first in a sequence of three Greek traditional men dances performed in the region of Pontus,[1] as well as by refugees of Pontos. Atsiapat is characterized by short steps and exaggerated movements that resemble stretching. This dance is followed directly by Serra. The final dance in the sequence is the Pyrrhichios.
