Welcome to our new web page!

Hello lovely Monday night dancers!  Following the excellent lead of Markid Mike Fox, I’m going to keep this blog updated with our Monday night news and videos of the dances we’ve learned, when I can.  Feel free to comment, share, follow, etc!

About Erica

Erica Goldman began Israeli dancing in New York as a child alongside her father, another folk dance fanatic. After many years performing with several New England area Israeli dance troupes, she branched out into other kinds of folk dance as a member of the Mandala Folkdance Ensemble and then the Collage Dance Ensemble, with whom she competed at the Golden Karagöz Folk Dance Competition in Turkey in 2003. In 2004, Erica spent the summer as the Dance Director of Camp Alonim (at the then Brandeis-Bardin Institute), a Jewish overnight camp where Israeli dancing is truly an obsession among the campers. She was hooked; after working for nearly eight years for a software company in Boston, she quit her job and moved to L.A. and has been teaching Israeli dance nearly full-time ever since, both in the US and abroad. Erica was the Israeli dance teacher at New Community Jewish High School in Los Angeles and also coordinated their Israel exchange programs with three high schools in Tel Aviv until 2014 when she returned to the East Coast for grad school. A grateful Wexner Fellow, Erica earned her MBA from the Heller School and her MA in the Hornstein Program for Jewish Professional Leadership at Brandeis University, and now is Director of Program and Operations at JPRO Network. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.

    Dear Erica,
    To post dances video are in your web are a such great idea specially those video are demonstrate from ORIGINAL CHOREOGRAPHER, please do “post” the video in your web instead of follow to other website not everyone has those “social website”.
    Suggestion: after dances been taught please play at least 4 consecutive weeks in order for dancers to be remember the steps, most of dances (almost 40-50%) that you taught either you don’t play after 2nd week or you killed them, what a pity. some of them are good dances.
