It's time to dance-Israeli-style

The Maitland JCC will be hosting an Israeli Dance Workshop on Saturday, March 29 and Sunday, March 30, featuring the talented Dany Benshalom, a well-known dance instructor from Israel. Along with his wife Noga, Dany leads one of the longest-running Israeli dance groups in Israel, which meets near Hadera. He will be teaching some of the latest dances, popular in Israeli and around the world.

"We are looking forward to this workshop, since our last weekend workshop took place five years ago. Dany always brings us wonderful new dances from Israel.  He is a wonderful teacher and is incredibly patient," said Debbie Meitin, leader of the Israeli dance program at the JCC for more than 25 years.

Saturday night is a dance party with some teaching, beginning at 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. On Sunday there will be three teaching sessions, beginning at 9 a.m. (with bagels at 8:30 a.m.) and running through 5 p.m., including a review and pot luck dinner. The cost is $60 for the entire workshop, $25 for Saturday only and $45 for Sunday only. For these prices, please register by March 24. After that day, all prices will be $10 more.
