Israeli folkdancing is a fun and aerobic recreation that is popular world-wide among people of all ages and backgrounds. You do not need a partner, just a sturdy pair of aerobics shoes and comfortable clothes. Five dollars donation is requested each Tuesday. Your first visit is free.

The Reno Israeli Dancers teach dances at the beginning and intermediate levels from 7:00 to 8:00 each Tuesday, so no prior experience is needed. From 8:00 to 9:00 the group plays requests from the dancers for songs ranging from the Yemenite Arab to the European Hasidic traditions. Almost all of these songs and dances have been created in Israel during the last two decades.

For more information, you can email John (johnnlouie@yahoo.com) or Yaakov (varol@cs.unr.edu). Or you can call Temple Sinai Mon.-Fri. 9:00AM-3:00PM at 775-747-5508, or email Admin@sinaireno.org.

Reno has an International Folkdance Coop as well, that meets 7:30-9:00 Thursday nights, also at Temple Sinai. The Coop hosts a monthly dance 7:00-9:00 PM on the first Saturday of each month, except July and August, at the Nevada Dance Academy, 1790 W. Fourth St., Reno.

Israeli Dancing at Caltech ran from 1970-1997 on Sunday nights, but is no more. Look at the old page for that group. There is still Israeli dancing in Pasadena, though, on Tuesday nights at the Jewish Temple Center, 1434 N Altadena Dr., with Inter. teaching from 7:00-9:30, then open dancing, $5, hosted by Jacob Giron at 714-546-8905.

In November 1995 the Dancers held their Silver Anniversary celebration. Read an article from the Los Angeles Times describing the fun!
