This class is a project of the (London) Israel Folk Dance Institute (IFDI)
- a registered charity(non-profit organisation).
IFDI is looking for dancers who intend to stay in London
for a while to join its perfroming troupe, ORANIM.
Also friends from 25 countries will attend Machol Europa 1998
Check out the Camps page here at Israelidance.com.
Finally, a big plea to all lovers of Israeli dance throughout the world
to help us find funding for our project to rekindle the flame of Jewish culture in Eastern Europe
through Israeli dance by providing material and training teachers.
We now have helped encourage classes in Prague, Bratislava, Kosice, Budapest, Sofia, Zagreb, Lublijana,
Kiev and most major centres in the Ukraine, Moscow, St Petersburg, Saratov
and many major centres in Russia and in Riga, Vilnius and some other Baltic states.
Our work is based on the teaching materials and methods primarily of Raya Spivak
for whose dances for children and youth we produce dual lingual books.
We act as her agent outside Israel.
