You can call 617-558-6500 for more details (or call or email me) or just come next week!
Class is in a lovely dance studio with a good sound system and a great floor.
7-8pm Beginners (no experience necessary!) and

The other students are warm and friendly and happy to be dancing!

Two weeks to go…

My dear dancing friends, I hope you will join us this Monday night for my last regular Monday night Mostly Couples session… after six years! And definitely don’t miss my real last night (and going-away party?) on Sunday August 3rd (no dancing Monday 8/4 due to Tisha B’av). I’m going to miss you!!

Any requests for my last teach or two??

Happy Summer, y’all! Harel and I each move(d) up to camp this week, so summer is really here!

Just before Rikud, we (re)-learned Dudu Barzilay’s 2001 dance “Don Kichote” and last week we also learned his new dance, “Bein Haptziot” – we reviewed that one tonight! The week right after camp we did Gadi Bitton’s “Achshav Karov”, a slow and pretty one to the Idan Raichel song, and tonight we learned Nona Malki’s new dance Romeio – here is a video of her dancing it with her husband Avi from Rikud. Enjoy!

See you tonight – we’ll review this and learn Dudu’s Don Kichote in advance of his coming to town at the end of the month!

Como Baila – קומו ביילה

Last year I was in Israel on Yom Hazikaron, a powerful and moving commemoration day in a country where the wounds are all too fresh. And then, the incredible transition into celebrating what is here, now, and what we love about it.

Take time to remember, and when the sun goes down Monday night, come celebrate Yom Haatzmaut with an incredible night of Israeli dancing and joy! See you there!

In the meantime, you can review Dudu Barzilay’s “Como Baila”, the dance Harel taught last week. Here you go:
