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.

Sept. 20 party - CANCELED

For the Labor Day weekend, I was at G'vanim (the dance camp in Pennsylvania) having a wonderful time... until I sprained my ankle! I went to the doctor, who told me that fortunately, I didn't fracture anything, but I did injure the deltoid ligament, which is a fairly serious sprain. I hate to do it, but given the circumstances, I'm canceling the Sept. 20 Nirkoda party. I hope to resume the published schedule with the Oct. 25 party, but I'll have to see what the orthopedist says. I'll keep you informed.
