Olympics Theme for Aug. 20, 2016, Party

It's been a while since we've had a theme at Nirkoda!, so this month, we're celebrating the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Wear something appropriate. For example...

  • A shirt with the Olympic rings
  • Something with a map of Brazil or Rio
  • The colors of one of the countries you're rooting for (e.g., USA or Israel)
  • A jersey or other uniform from your favorite sport (please, no speedos!)

Latishya guest DJing on June 25

I will be teaching Israeli dance at Limmud Bay Area, so Latishya will be running the June 25, 2016, Nirkoda! session. Aside from being an accomplished dancers, which you all know, she performed, taught, and DJed in Boston before coming to the Bay Area. She's going to run a wonderful session, so make sure to be there!

End-of-the-Year Party with Aaron, Karina, and Loui on 12/21/15

I'm pleased and excited to announce that Karina, Loui, and I will be putting on an End-of-the-Year Party! We know that you can't go two weeks without Israeli dancing, and with the Sunnyvale CC and Palo Alto JCC closures, you'll go crazy without your Israeli dance fix. So, the three of us are co-hosting a party on Monday, December 21, and we hope you'll join us!

4161 Alma Street, Palo Alto

Cost: $10
