Dipat is a Greek spiritual dance of the Trapezounta (Trabzon) region in Pontos (near the Black Sea). This dance is also known as Omal-Trapezountas. It is a very distinctive dance: the name of the dance means "two-step," but in reality the dance has an unusual movement involving more than two steps. However, the two-step the dance name refers to is the only step which moves the dance slightly to the right. This dance is also danced for long periods of time and has many different melodies and songs to the same beat.
