Barbarim – ברברים

This past Tuesday I taught the dance Barbarim by Dudu Barzilay. This dance was created in 2020 – during the pandemic – so I did not have much of an opportunity to teach it until now!

Gam Ani – גם אני

Gam Ani was a dance that became popular as dance groups started to return to in-person dancing as the pandemic slowed. The dance is by Michael Barzelai and the song is sung by Rami Kleinstein.

New Beginners Class Starting – Tuesday, October 5!

With the chaggim behind us, we will now get back to our “normal” Tuesday night schedule at Ohr Kodesh!

I will be starting a new class for Beginners on Tuesday, October 5. This class will meet every Tuesday from 7pm to 8pm for ten weeks. We will focus on basic steps and a beginners repertoire of dances. This is perfect for those who are new to Israeli dancing or have been away from dancing for years (or decades!) and want to return.

COVID vaccinations are mandatory and while local guidance requires masking indoors we will be dancing with masks.

If you have any questions, email Markid Mike!

Zricha – זריחה

On Tuesday, August 24 we had special guests at our session – Hila Mukdasi, Tamir David and Paloma Raphael – who were all guest teachers at the Gvanim camp the weekend before. Hila Mukdasi taught the dance Zricha by Daniela Welch to our group. It was the first dance we had learned together in-person since March 2020!!!

Here’s a video of the choreographer Daniela Welch demonstrating her dance Zricha. I will be reviewing the dance this Tuesday.

Virtual Israeli Dancing Tonight – Tuesday, December 22

We are dancing on Zoom again this evening from 7:30pm to 10pm Eastern time!

I will continue to dance with a small group of younger dancers outdoors and showing that via Zoom. When restrictions start to be relaxed in Montgomery County I will try to expand it to others as they are comfortable joining in….but I will continue to broadcast dancing online.

This week, I will be broadcasting the Zoom video over Facebook Live. Since Facebook usually limits the duration of live streamed videos, I will start broadcasting around 8pm Eastern. Visit my Facebook site for the video: https://www.facebook.com/MarkidMike
