I’m resending some videos of dances we have worked on. I’m also trying to get an mp3 of this gorgeous Ladino version of HaShoshanah Porachat, or The Rose:

Here’s a video of a new intermediate/advanced dance that has been requested– Aneni… it seems very popular. It’s good for wafting and swooping around, which is fun to do on occasion. It means “Answer me”

The last advanced dance we did was this one, Mamriim (They’re taking off)

And before that, Arba Onot (4 Seasons)

We reviewed a staple dance, Or Chadash

Links I’ve sent before, to a range of dances including beginners’ are here
