Israeli Folk Dancing

Circle and line dances to songs in Hebrew, and even a few in Arabic, Turkish, Spanish, Greek, Farsi and English.

We will dance on a wood floor starting August 30! We’ll be dancing in room 25 in the Person Senior wing of the Finley Community Center.  The Israeli folk dance class is in their catalog, so everyone will have to register and pay for 6 to seven classes at a time with santarosarec.com .
The catalog is online and registration is open. 7 sessions every other week from August 30 to November 29, and a winter listing from December 13 to February 21. Classes will range from $17 (for Santa Rosa Residents) to $27 dollars for 6 sessions. Though we are in the Senior Center, all ages are welcome.

Hours are every other Wednesday 7 to 9:30 p.m., with beginner lessons 7 to 7:30.

Starting  on August 30 as an official class at the Person Senior Center at Finley rec center.
You will have to register for the class through Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks, and in return we will get a nice wood floor.

Registration begins August 3.

In fact, you can probably find groups of israeli dancers to join almost anywhere in the world:
