T

he Nashville Israeli Folk Dance Group was started in 1993 by a small group of amateur folk dance enthusiasts. It is modeled after groups found in every major city in the world in which people of all ages and cultures get together regularly to participate in Israeli folk dancing. Since Israel’s population is the result of an ingathering of many different nationalities, its folk dance repertoire is truly international. Dance styles include Spanish, Hasidic, Moroccan, Yemeni, Greek – even disco and rock. The Nashville group has flourished with weekly dance sessions, courses for beginners, workshops with renowned instructors from Israel, community outreach, parties and performances. In Nashville, Israeli dancing means great music and exercise among the friendliest people in town. We have three weekly sessions: • Thursday, 8-9:30 p.m., the Ben Schulman Center for Jewish Life at Vanderbilt University. The first hour is devoted to beginning dance, and the rest of the session to intermediate/advanced dance instruction and request dancing. Parking is available in Schulman Lot, nearby lots or along street as appropriate.

• Wednesday, 6:30-8:30 p.m., the Gordon Jewish Community Center. The first hour is for beginners/easy danc-

ing and remainder for intermediate/ advanced dancing. • Friday, 10:30-11:30 a.m. at Akiva School for those who cannot make the evening class or prefer a day class. Please contact us if you would like to be on our mailing list to receive notices of upcoming events, including special beginner courses and dance workshops, or if you have any questions about our group. And check our Facebook page (Nashville Israeli Folk Dancers) for upcoming workshops, weekly class information, or special events. •
