Silchi Li Yalda – סלחי לי ילדה

This past week I taught the dance Silchi Li Yalda by Shmulik Gov-Ari. This dance has been very popular in Israel and in other communities around the world for a few months, so I am glad to have finally introduced it here in the DC area!

No Dancing Until October 22 – BEGINNERS October 29!

Due to the holidays, there will be no Tuesday night dancing until October 22. Since Sukkot ends that evening, we will start dancing at 7:30pm instead of 7pm.

The following week – Tuesday, October 29 – I will be starting a new class for BEGINNERS! This will be an 8 week class that focuses on basic steps and an introductory repertoire.
