Music and Dance Related Events in Greece

Hello there! We’re about to visit Greece in a few months with our kids (aged 12 and 15). We will visit Athens, Crete and Santorini. We would love to see something related to Greek music and dance. Maybe a traditional Greek dance performance or even something outdoors and casual? Is there something available for us during the summer months?
