Israeli Dance

ISRAELI DANCE, led by teacher Heather Spitzberg,  offers our students in grades K-6, a unique opportunity to explore our Jewish and Israeli cultural heritage. In addition to our regular dance class during Religious School, Heather will also be teaching our performance dance group which meets before religious school on Sundays 8:30-9:30 AM. Heather comes to us with an extensive background in a variety of dances and a passion that she is excited to share. It is not too late to register for the performance dance group - please log into your account and add this to your registration.  Questions? call or e-mail Joni in the religious school office at 432-1392.  It’s going to be a terrific year!!!

Some words from our new dance teacher, Heather Spitzberg:

“I'm thrilled to be teaching Israeli Dance this year. Long before I was Jack and Rivi's mom I began to take classes in Middle Eastern and tribal folk dancing. My passion grew and I became part of a dancing troupe that performed around Westchester County, as well as the Rakassah East Middle Eastern Dance Festival in New Jersey. I joined a new troupe when I relocated to Albany and performed in several locations, including the Moon and River Cafe in Schenectady and the Carrot Festival at Congregation Agudat Achim. As part of a troupe, we choreograph our own pieces and help each other master not only the dance, but the spirit and connections behind the dance. I look forward to bringing this experience to the children at Beth Emeth by teaching the different Israeli Dances associated with the Jewish holidays, festivals and celebrations. I hope students will gain a better understanding of Israeli culture and history through the art of dance. Finally, as Israeli Dance is considered a "folk" dance that can be modified by the generations, I also look forward to encouraging and inspiring the children to add their own movements to the dances.”
