Ma'agal 2015 - The Next Step in Israeli Dance Education

May 26-28, 2015

Source: Camp Alonim


Ma’agal, hosted by Camp Alonim just outside Los Angeles, CA on May 26-28, 2015, is a unique opportunity for rikud specialists from Jewish camps of all kinds — from the dance-obsessed to “what does rikud mean again?” (it means dance!) — to learn everything they need to take their camp's Israeli dance programs to the next level. Connect with a new community of Israeli dance professionals and be part of a growing network that will exist throughout the summer and for summers to come.

  • Repertoire – some great dances to teach

  • History – why Israeli dance is what it is and who helped make it that way

  • Younger kids – different dances, different techniques
