Horepse (Greek script Χόρεψε, English translation: "Dance") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed in Greek by Marianna Zorba.

The music was originally composed by Chris Spheeris as an instrumental. Lyrics were later added by Manolis Manouselis. The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Sweden's Blond with "Bara hon älskar mig" and preceding Malta's Debbie Scerri with "Let Me Fly"). At the close of voting, it had received 39 points, placing 12th in a field of 25.

The song is about the power of dance to rejuvenate people, with the lyrics making mention of "caravans" and the "desert", thus implying a Middle Eastern setting.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1998 Contest by Thalassa with "Mia Krifi Evesthisia".
