Head on over to this page for all the details and registration info.

It's been a while since we've had a theme at Nirkoda!, so this month, we're celebrating the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Wear something appropriate. For example...
- A shirt with the Olympic rings
- Something with a map of Brazil or Rio
- The colors of one of the countries you're rooting for (e.g., USA or Israel)
- A jersey or other uniform from your favorite sport (please, no speedos!)
Add these to your calendar for Nirkoda! fun in the next 11 months...

I will be teaching Israeli dance at Limmud Bay Area, so Latishya will be running the June 25, 2016, Nirkoda! session. Aside from being an accomplished dancers, which you all know, she performed, taught, and DJed in Boston before coming to the Bay Area. She's going to run a wonderful session, so make sure to be there!
We are now accepting credit cards or PayPal for regular session. Note that a 60 cent fee is added to cover the cost of credit card processing. You can either pay on this website, or you can ask Aaron to swipe your credit card at the session.
I'm pleased and excited to announce that Karina, Loui, and I will be putting on an End-of-the-Year Party! We know that you can't go two weeks without Israeli dancing, and with the Sunnyvale CC and Palo Alto JCC closures, you'll go crazy without your Israeli dance fix. So, the three of us are co-hosting a party on Monday, December 21, and we hope you'll join us!
Location: Congregation Etz Chayim (where I usually do Nirkoda! parties)
4161 Alma Street, Palo Alto
When: Mon., Dec. 21, 2015, 8:30-11:30 PM
Take a look here for the newest batch of Nirkoda! dates. Note that September's party moved a week later to the 26th (I'm going to a wedding the week before). Still working on December and January dates, but those should be finalized soon. Of course, don't forget that next month (June 13, 2015) we have Sagi Azran visiting!
