Yurukikos or Yurukiko (Greek: Γιουρούκικος; sometimes written Youroukikos) is a Greek instrumental dance from Agiasos (Greece), with a nine beat rhythm. The dance has many similarities with antikristos dance. This tune may take its name from the Yuruks (Greek: Γιουρούκους), the Greek immigrants from Asia Minor. The dance can be also compared with Greek rebetiko dances of that time.
