The Center for Traditional Music and Dance and the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan present a Tantshoyz (Dance House). Lace up your dancing shoes for an evening of traditional East European Jewish dancing led by master dance leader Zev Feldman. Live klezmer music will be provided by some of New York's hottest musicians: Jake Shulman-Ment (violin) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl/hammered dulcimer).

Cost is $10 ($8 for JCC and Workman’s Circle Members), pay at the door. Questions call Pete at 917-326-9659

A new international Yiddish Dance Action Network has been created to help research and promote Yiddish Dance around the world. For more information, contact Pete Rushefsky.

And if you have old family videos with footage of traditional Yiddish Dance we’d love to know about it!

Support for the Yiddish Dance Project was provided to the Center for Traditional Music & Dance by the Forward Association, the New York State Council on the Arts Folk Arts Program, a State agency, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
