Learn to play the finest freylakhs, horas, waltzes, and Israeli melodies together. Let's sing and dance! Join us onstage for the closing concert if the ruach moves you! Join us whether you're a “nu”-b or an experienced klezmer or dancer. This program of favorites is accessible for all levels. Our enthusiastic, patient, and experienced dance master, Bernice Maslan, will lead as we kick up our heels and tantz until we plotz! Sheet music and lyrics in Hebrew and Yiddish (with transliteration) provided. All instruments welcome; please bring music stands.
