We attempt to get to all requested Israeli dances, no matter how popular they were when they were new, as long as they were choreographed before 2001. If you want a dance for which you know we don’t have the music, just bring us the CD or tape. The rest of the program will consist of a wide selection of older dances; mostly from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s; and we vary what we play each month. The program is all-circle until 9:30, and then a mix of circle dances and short sets of couple dances until closing. Join us in dancing to NONE of the latest hit songs from Israel!
