Created especially for dancers, this course will be taught by the UK’s expert Yiddish dance leader, Guy Schalom. No experience is necessary, just an interest in Klezmer music and dance. We will cover circle, line, couple and square dances from Jewish Eastern European and beyond. The course will be integrated with the instrumental course, so participants will enjoy live music at every session from faculty members.

The course will cover:
– Core Yiddish dance repertoire including freylekhs, sher, khosidl, patsh.
– Co-territorial and cross-genre repertoire including bulgar, Romanian hora (zhok), sirba, plus related local European dances such as Korobushka and Miserlou.
– Jewish styling and aesthetic.
– How to respond to a live band.
– How to lead dancing, and how to direct and guide a live band in workshops and simchas.
