March 28 Nirkoda canceled

I know you've all been getting a plethora of cancellation notifications this week, and I'm sorry to add to the pile. Our March 28 Nirkoda party is canceled due to the coronavirus situation, though I hope and expect we'll be back to normal for the April 18 party.

In the meantime, you can...

Nirkoda Im Ohad 2018

Back in the Bay, and Here to Stay!

Aaron Alpert teaching at Stockton Folk Dance Camp 2018

The last year has been quite a tumultuous ride for me. Lots of lows, followed but a bunch of highs, but all contributing to a general air of uncertainty. Things are finally settling down, and my life is assuming some level of predictability. What this means is that I've begun the hunt for a venue for a 2019 dance camp, reaching out to several local places. Other Israeli dance projects, such as an October 2018 workshop, are also cooking. Anyway, I just wanted to give you a hint of things to come, and hope you'll get excited about lots of great Nirkoda-ness coming your way!

Camp canceled. October party moved to the 28th.

Sadly, we were forced to cancel Camp Nirkoda Ba'Kerem 2017 due to the terrible wildfires in Northern California. However, because many were unable to change their plane flights, I decided to move the Oct. 21 party to Oct. they could join us. Yaron Malihi will be there! He's the fantastically talented choreographer of favorites like Bocha Be'seter, Hayom Haba, Derech Ha'shalom, and Orot Ve'ashan. Halloween theme, so wear a costume!
