Thank you to so many of you for coming dancing last week so I could see you before my big road trip! I’ve almost reached the East Coast, and as most of you know, I’ll be away for another month or so. Meanwhile, our fabulous team of Har-el Asaraf and Liatt Granott will continue to bring you great dancing on Monday nights so don’t miss a week!
Tonight they will review the dance I taught last week, Elad Shtamer’s “Haor Izrach” – a very lovely one. Have a great time and feel free to drop me an email and tell me you miss me 🙂
PS – Don’t forget that the “Dances Taught Quicklist” at the top of the page is always up to date with the info about the dances we’ve learned lately!
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.
