March 13-14, 2021 - Israeli Folkdance Festival of Boston
Dear members of the Rikud community -
As you have probably guessed, the 2021 Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston will not happen in its normal format this year. However, we plan to host events on Festival weekend (Saturday night March 13th and Sunday afternoon March 14th 2021) and are excited to invite you to participate in a virtual performance on Saturday evening! You can join us from anywhere and dance in as many pieces as appropriate.
Here's how it will work: choreographers from years past are reviving pieces for 3 different age groups:
Kid and Loving Adult - Siba LeMesiba choreographed by Nomie Bental and Eliana Wachs-Cashman
Elementary/Middle School - LaUf choreographed by Ellen Berkowitz
High School - Adults - Hora Meshulevet choreographed by Alexis Maharam
How do you participate?
- Fill out this form to let us know you'd like to participate and in which dances you'd like to dance.
- The choreographer will reach out to you with teaching videos for your chosen piece, and will let you know about the Zoom rehearsal schedule.
- You'll learn the dance from the teaching videos and Zoom rehearsals. Then you'll record yourself dancing the piece. We'll provide instructions later about how to send your video in for a video editor to create a whole "performance".
- Deadlines for sending your video will be around January 20th for the first half of the piece and February 10th for the end. You will receive final details after you sign up
Confused? See here for an example of the end product.
You must sign up by January 5th, 2021 in order to participate so please fill out this form ASAP and tell all your friends to dance with us as well!! Anyone can dance - wherever they are in the world. We look forward to dancing with you!!
Other things are cooking for Festival weekend so save the date and stay tuned by following us on Facebook, visiting our website (bostonfestival.org), and watching your inbox!
We can't wait to dance with you,
The Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston Coordinating Committee, Nomie Bental, and Ellen Berkowitz
