Every Thursday night (except holidays), Chicago Israeli Folk Dance group meets at the Beth Emet Synagogue, 1224 Dempster Street IL.
7-9PM: circles/lines (including teaching) The first part will be beginners focused. At some point later in that session, maybe around 8:30 we'll teach a circle dance intended for the general repertoire.
9-11PM: mixed partners/circles sets. We'll teach one partner dance, pretty close to 9.
11-11:30PM: ending partners
We plan to continue to broadcast on zoom. And perhaps have guest leaders do some short sets sprinkled in. TBD on that part, but hopefully we can have remote people show up on the big screen in our room and be able to dances their dances while focusing on our own circle at the same time. We hope to maintain the wonderful connections we have made over the past year to the extent we can. This is a work in progress. We'll see where it goes.
OUR INDOOR SESSIONS WILL BE OPEN ONLY TO THOSE WHO ARE FULLY VAXED. PLEASE SEND A PHOTO OF YOUR VACCINATION CARD TO ME AT: firstname.lastname@example.org or via my whatsapp at +1 312 519 8669.
Many of you have already sent me your cards. Thanks so much. The rest of you, keep them coming. WE ARE REQUIRED TO MASK IN THE TEMPLE'S PUBLIC SPACES WHEN WE ARE OUTSIDE OUR DANCE ROOM. For now, we are not permitted to serve food (but I am optimistic this will change).
COST: $15 on non-party nights (
Stay tuned for further information. Can't wait be together with everyone in our dance home!
No partners required. Predominant age range is from 20-50s but we get 'em younger and older too.
Also, please be aware that our group has been dancing for a number of years, so most people found us well before Meetup.com existed. People join us from Meetup as well, of course, and are welcome. However, please don't expect to see much feedback on Meetup. Communication like that is handled mostly either through our website, www.chicagoisraelidancing.com or my mailing list or through our Facebook group.
Please email me at Philip_b_moss@hotmail.com if you want to be on our mailing list. Or request to join the Facebook Group, Chicago Israeli Folk Dancing.
Please tell your friends about our group and please let me know if you need any further information.
