Israeli dancing is back!. We dance circle and line dances with musical influences from around the world, ranging from songs about Israel to sensuous Middle Eastern melodies, high energy salsa tunes to modern upbeat Israeli music and much more. This is very different to simcha dancing, and it’s great exercise. Beginners are always welcome. In line with covid safety, we have limited numbers, all windows and doors open – you can dance outside if the weather allows – and there is no physical contact. Donation of £5 to the shul, but come and try it for free. Email to let us know if you’re coming or to find out more.
