Penny Brichta has been teaching the beginner’s session at the popular Northwestern University Israeli Dance group for over 20 years.  Contrary to popular belief, she was over 19 when she started co-leading the group.  Since spending her junior year of college living in Israel and dancing far more often than studying, Penny has been hooked on dance.   She is responsible for introducing many of the modern Israeli dances to the Midwest International Dance communities.   While Israeli remains her favorite, Penny has also earned certification as a Jazzercise aerobic dance instructor.
