Balancing individual expression and community togetherness, traditional Yiddish dance is as beautiful as it is fun. Join Avia for a Yiddish dance class that will have you shining on the dance floor at night! A workshop for new dancers, experienced dancers, and even those that think they are not dancers. With plenty of room for variation, these are traditional dances that everyone can enjoy together. We will look at the fundamentals of Yiddish dance forms, from steps to style, learn plenty of repertoire, and think about the dances in the context of our modern lives. We also look at performance styles, particularly the Broyges Tants, to prepare for the wedding! This is also great class for klezmer musicians – better understanding the dances is a step towards becoming a great dance band leader.
