Israeli Dance –Israeli Dance specialty session – Israeli dancing continues to be one of the most vibrant, living, breathing recreational dance forms out there. 200-300 new dances are offered to the world-wide repertoire each year by numerous talented creators of Israeli dance. The music represents what has been/is going on in Israeli culture which itself is greatly influenced by the multitude of ethnicities that populate Israel.

At their weekly 43 years young session in Chicago, Penny and Phil blend the old and the new, and these many styles and influences.

Come enjoy this workshop presented by these excellent spirited teachers and enjoy the fun that is Israeli dance.

Workshop #1 Friday: “Time-Tested” Israeli Dances
Penny and Phil will present dances which have endured over time in their group and around the Israeli Dance world. These are the dances that are most likely candidates to bring home to your local session to add to your Israeli repertoire.

Workshop #2 Saturday: Newer Israel Dances
Phil and Penny will teach some of the best material among the dances presented over the last year or two. These dances are based on the latest music hits and hip sounds coming out of Israel today. We will select some of the most popular - those we hope and expect to have some power to endure over time.
