Israeli Dance Workshop

Filed under: Dance — castiron @ 7:05 pm

I spent the 4th of July weekend at an Israeli dance workshop taught by Ya’akov Eden. Eden is a wonderful teacher with an acerbic sense of humor, and the dances were fabulous. It’s a good workout, too.

Dances taught:

  • Ba’ah Mechunah, a fairly slow and laid-back circle dance
  • Debka Hachamor, lots more energetic and challenging
  • Dror Yikra, another energetic dance with lots of grapevines and a funky knee dip
  • Likrat Shabat, a very sweet and peaceful circle dance
  • Nigunim, a slow couple dance
  • Dodi Li, a slightly faster couple dance
  • Kuma Echa, another energetic dance
