Remembering
YANKELE DEKEL z"l

VETERAN CHOREOGRAPHER WHO LEFT US WITH A LEGACY OF DANCES SUCH AS AM SEGULA, EGLAY TAL, HORA HEFER, HORA SECHARCHORET AND OTHERS. TO REMEMBER YANKELE, HIS DANCES WILL BE TAUGHT DURING THE AFTERNOON REPERTOIRE WORKSHOPS AND PLAYED DURING THE EVENING MARATHONS/PARTIES. YANKELE WAS SHEDULED TO TEACH HIS DANCES AT SHORASHIM ONLY A FEW YEARS AGO, BUT HAD TO CANCEL DUE TO MEDICAL REASONS. THUS, WE LOST THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN FIRST-HAND THE DANCES OF YANKELE DEKEL, WHO WAS ONE OF THE LAST OF HIS GENERATION.

Celebrating the 90th Birthday of
DANI DASSA

CHOREOGRAPHER WHOSE CLASSIC DANCES SUCH AS AL HANISSIM, ASHRAY HA’ISH, BEIN HARAY HEVRON, JOSHUA, RACHEL, SHEDEMATI, AND NUMEROUS OTHERS REMAIN POPULAR AT ISRAELI FOLK DANCE SESSIONS. TO COMMEMORATE DANI REACHING HIS 90th YEAR, MANY OF HIS DANCES WILL BE PLAYED DURING THE EVENING MARATHONS/PARTIES AND SOME WILL BE TAUGHT DURING THE AFTERNOON REPERTOIRE WORKSHOPS.

UNIQUE ASPECTS ABOUT SHORASHIM & SOME NEW THINGS FOR 2019

 

  • RESERVE YOUR SPACE & SAVE MONEY: Shorashim continues our 28-year tradition of providing the best teachers at an affordable cost.  This year you will be able to make reservations prior to the weekend at the very low rates we had last year and pay only when you arrive at the door (Shabbat observers will be accommodated). These very low rates apply to all reservations: per session, whole day, or complete weekend. If you do not pre-register, the rates will be higher at the door (see above). Also, making a reservation assures your admission should space be limited for a specific event.
  • Having been transformed into an "urban camp" over 20 years ago, Shorashim remains on Broadway with all events at Bridge for Dance, a professional dance studio with air-conditioning  and a great wooden dance floor (especially for those who still love to dance barefoot).
  • You can pick and choose the workshop(s) and party/marathon nights that are appropriate for you, which can result in a considerable savings.
  • The early part the day is free. Workshops start at 2pm.  So if you are visiting New York, you can take advantage of the numerous attractions in the City during part of the day.
  • As a courtesy to visitors to New York City attending Shorashim, names of reasonably priced hostels and hotels within walking distance of Bridge for Dance may be provided, if requested.  We will also try to arrange home hospitality, if possible.
  • A video will also be available of all the dances taught at Shorashim, and memories of the weekend created by videographer and dance leader, Ben Hole (who also has videos of previous Shorashim weekends).
