Dance leader workshop, NYC, Dec 22

In response to a real shortage of dance leaders on the Klezmer scene, Steve Weintraub, in cooperation with Living Traditions, is offering a quick crash course in Yiddish dance leading. Learn a philosophical and practical approach to getting people up and dancing and having a good time in traditionally grounded manner.

Steve Weintraub is a well known dance master at KlezKamp and other festivals, and has been described as a "Jewish Pied Piper" for his ability to get all sorts of people dancing like they never knew they could.

Steve will share practical techniques for successfully leading various dance figures and styles. This will be a hands-on workshop; participants should be prepared to dance and lead one another. It's suggested that participants bring a bandana or clean handkerchief as well.

The workshop will be held in NYC on Thursday 22 December
