Israeli folk dance
Learn and dance the latest Israeli circle dances on Monday nights at the Harry & Rose Samson Jewish Family Community Center, 6255 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Whitefish Bay. Participants usually start with a few beginner/easier dances, then move on to more advanced dances as the evening progresses. Please note that the JCC no longer offers the Israeli Dance program for free. If you would like to show up to try out a class, a $15 registration fee per class applies. If you decide to join the class on a more permanent basis, you can purchase a community subscription for $180 per year. With this membership you get 12 months membership for all exercise classes at JCC, which means you pay the membership price for any class you want to take. The Israeli dance class is free for all members. Because we are dancing indoors in an unventilated space, it is necessary that all dancers be fully vaccinated to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID for all attendees. If you are not vaccinated and still wish to participate, you must wear a mask at all times in the dance studio and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other dancers.
