All the news!

Hi dancers! Lots of updates today:

1. Last week Harel reviewed Elad’s “HaOr Yizrach” and Liatt taught Avi Perez’s new dance, “Layla Gashum”. I hope you liked it so much that you really want to see Avi in April at…

2. Yad Beyad Boston!! It’s a new dance camp in Cambridge, MA, April 26-28, 2013 and the staff will be Avi(!), Carina Saslavasky (!!), and ME!!! PLEASE COME!!

3. But I’ll see you before that, on Christmas Eve! Plan to dance later and celebrate more because I’LL BE BACK TO DANCE WITH YOU ON MONDAY 12/24! I can’t wait to see you! (No dancing New Year’s Eve – maybe we’ll do a marathon next year?)

4. But even before that… it’s Chanukah! Bring your chanukiot to light tomorrow night with Harel and Liatt – and send me pictures 🙂

Thanks so much to those of you who have inquired after my mom; she’s recovering nicely and I’m incredibly grateful that I am able to be here in Florida with her while she heals. Our love to you all.

Chag Chanukah Sameach and see you Erev Christmas 🙂


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.
