Remembering
YANKELE LEVY z"l

Yankele Levy z”l left us this year with a great legacy of dances that are done all over the world such as Ahuvi Hazor, Eten Bamidbar, Geulim, Hinach Yafa, Hora Hadera, Lo Ahavti Dai, Shecharchoret & many others. To remember Yankele, his dances will be played during the evening parties/marathons and some will be taught during the afternoon workshops. Yankele has been with us more times than any other choreographer from Israel and he will be sorely missed.

Plus, a Special Tribute to
MOSHE ESKAYO

Moshe Eskayo dedicated his life choreographing performance troupes, starting in Jerusalem, and creating many popular dances after he came to the U.S., including Bakramim, Ha'ir Ba'afor, Ilu Tziporim, Hashir Sheli, Libavtini, Ramot, Sapari & numerous others. Moshe also organized successful dance camps, including Hora Keff, and brought the top Israeli dance choreographers to teach as part of his staff. We will honor Moshe for his lifetime contributions through his dances, which will be done during the evening parties/marathons and taught in the afternoon tributes.

And Featuring Guest Teachers
ZVI "TACHO" HILLMAN

Zvi "Tacho" Hillman is one of Israel’s most experienced folk dance choreographers and teachers. Creator of Erev Shel Shoshanim, Hava Nagila and other dances, including Le’artzi, 1st prize winner at Karmiel 1992. Choreographer of leading performing troupes in Jerusalem including Hora Yerushalayim (Neurim & Vatikim), Lahakat Hastudentim and Shorashim, a troupe he founded to preserve classic stage dances of Yonatan Karmon and others. As a youth, Zvi began to dance with Moshe Eskayo in Jerusalem and will provide a personal tribute to his first teacher and choreographer.

RUTH GOODMAN

Ruth Goodman is director of the Israeli Dance Institute, the annual Israel Folk Dance Festival and the Jewish/Israeli Dance Division of 92Y in New York. She is founder and director of the Parparim Ensemble of Israeli Dance and has directed a variety of dance programs and conducted dance workshops for teachers.  As in past years, Ruth brings her many talents to Shorashim.

DANNY POLLOCK

Danny Pollock is a well-known master teacher of Israeli Folk Dance in the New York region.  Danny returns once again to teach his popular classic repertoire dance workshops at Shorashim, which have become an established tradition that we look forward to with great anticipation. “Dancing Danny” brings a lot of fun & joy to workshops as well as nightly parties.

UNIQUE ASPECTS ABOUT SHORASHIM & SOME NEW THINGS FOR 2018

 

  • RESERVE YOUR SPACE & SAVE MONEY: Shorashim continues our 27-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).
