Zeibekiko (Greek: Ζεϊμπέκικο) is a Greek folk dance with a rhythmic pattern of 9/4 or else 9/8. It is most commonly broken down as:
1/8 + 1/16 + 1/16 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/16 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8
1/16 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8.
The dance is of free choreographic structure. Although in older times the dance was danced by a pair of either the same or opposite sex, it has been evolved a solo dance strictly masculine and is considered in some cases offensive to be interrupted by another dancer. Occasionally dancers perform feats such as standing on a glass of wine or a chair or fireplace, or picking up a table, adding a sense of a little braggadocio and humor.
