Two new dances from Rikud!

Hi friends,

I’m back from an amazing time teaching in Brazil and I’m happy to see we have some great new dances from Rikud to do together. The week I was away, Liatt taught you Dudu Barzilay’s “Mashehu Acher”, and last week we learned Yaron Ben-Simchon’s “Kmo She’ani Ohev Otach”, which we originally learned at a Winter Rikud a few years ago, from Harel. Huge thanks to them for holding down the fort in my absence, as always, and enjoy the video! I’ll upload the new one when I have it.


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 earlier this year when she returned to the East Coast for grad school. A newly-minted Wexner Fellow, Erica is currently at work earning her MBA from the Heller School and her MA in the Hornstein Program for Jewish Professional Leadership at Brandeis University, and is currently spending her 12th summer at Camp Alonim.
