Israeli Dance

Do Israeli children dance the Hokey Pokey? Are dances that Israeli teens do different from the ones Canadian teens enjoy?  What does music sung in Hebrew sound like? If you’re curious and want to learn some great dances from a country far away…try this workshop. Israel is one of the most multicultural countries in the world and its dances reflect that fact.

For the younger groups we’ll do age appropriate, fun children’s Israeli dances. For teens, there’s lively horas, chassidic dances of joy, perhaps a  strong Arab debka, or exotic Yemenite dance and definitely a line dance or two.
