Lomir Tantsn/Let's Dance: Introduction to Yiddish Folk Dance

Course Description:
Co-created with internationally-acclaimed Yiddish dance teacher, Avia Moore, this mini-series will teach us the basics of Yiddish folk dance. As beautiful as they are fun, these are dances that everyone can enjoy together. They are a living tradition that balance individual expression and community spirit.
From the simple freylekh, which means joyful, to the broyges tantz, a traditional wedding dance of “anger and reconciliation” between new mother-in-laws,
we’ll learn about the cultural and historical context of these dances and
get to experience them in our bodies. Class will culminate in our annual
khanike celebration, with a dance party on Dec. 15th. This class is open to anyone interested, no matter your dancing experience or ability. 


Dates: Thurs. evenings, Nov. 7 - Dec. 12 (5 sessions) + Saturday Dec. 15 Khanike dance party! 

Time: 7:00-9:00pm

Location: BWC, 6 Webster St. Brookline, MA 02446


Tuition: $120 BWC members ($24/session) // $150 non members ($30/session). Tuition includes free admission to BWC's Khanike Celebration Dec. 15!
