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 (email@example.com) or Yaakov (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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.

In June 1996 many current and former Caltech Dancers attended the 23rd annual Israeli Folk Dance Institute at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, to sharpen their skills. (Link active working hours only.)
In November 1995 the Dancers held their Silver Anniversary celebration. Read an article from the Los Angeles Times describing the fun!
