Hi dancing friends,
I’m wrapping up summer #12 at Camp Alonim in CA and heading back to Boston soon for school… and for GVANIM!! This incredible Israeli dance camp is in its fourth year and it just gets better every time. Come join us! All the info you need to register is here at the Gvanim website. Ohad Atia, Chen Shporen, Michael Barzilai, and a staff that spends all our time coming up with wackier and more clever ideas every year – to amuse you AND ourselves! IT’S REALLY SOON SO REGISTER NOW!!
I’ll also be teaching at this year’s RikuDallas, October 23-25. You can pick and choose which portions of the weekend to attend, or register for the whole thing for only $90!! For more information, contact Anita Friedman or Galit Ribakoff.
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.
