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!

Location: Congregation Etz Chayim (where I usually do Nirkoda! parties)
4161 Alma Street, Palo Alto

Cost: $10

When: Mon., Dec. 21, 2015, 8:30-11:30 PM

Dates through August 2016 posted

Take a look here for the newest batch of Nirkoda! dates. Note that September's party moved a week later to the 26th (I'm going to a wedding the week before). Still working on December and January dates, but those should be finalized soon. Of course, don't forget that next month (June 13, 2015) we have Sagi Azran visiting!

Special guest teacher in June - Sagi Azran!

Sagi Azran

I'm very excited to announce that SAGI AZRAN will be joining us as a special guest teacher on June 13, 2015. Sagi is originally from Israel but now lives in Los Angeles. He runs two weekly sessions, and this year started the fantastically successful MachoLA dance camp. He's also the the choreographer of two dances that we have quickly embraced as favorites — At K'mo Ha'ruach and Hi Lo At.
