Eifo Hayit – איפה היית

Great to see you all last night! We learned “Eifo Hayit” (Where were you?), choreographed by Ilan Benedict. Here’s the video. Enjoy!

Don’t forget: we will be CLOSED on Monday, July 15, for Tisha B’av, a very solemn commemoration day… but we have three Mondays before that, so don’t miss any (and one of them is Harel’s birthday!!)

Another important date: June 21st is the last day to register for GVANIM and get a special surprise at camp, so what are you waiting for? It’s going to be a GREAT camp –Labor Day weekend, August 30 – September 2.  Come dance with three rising stars from directly from Israel: Eran Bitton, Elad Shtamer, and Chen Shporen. They will wow you with their energy and pure love of dance. You can bring your families too, because there’s a children’s camp – all the usual fun camp activities provided for them, plus a really fun CHILDREN’S DANCE PROGRAM WITH ME!!

Register now at www.gvanimcamp.com and tell your friends!!


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.
