It's been years since I looked at it, but I bet the standard stuff in
is still Lillian Lawler, which isn't exactly "dreary competence" but is
discouraging on the possiblity of actually *doing* ancient Greek dance;
Germaine Prudhommeau in France is still publishing (vol. 1 of a history
of the dance in 1995, says the WorldCat:

Her specific 2-vol work on Greek dance:

Struck me as awfully certain about the parallels between classical
and ancient moves, but she has a lot of pix and it's fascinating
