ISRAELI FOLK DANCING
February 17 (7-8:15pm)

Israeli Folk Dancing CBD is happy to announce that Israeli Folk Dancing will take place Sunday evenings from 7-8:15pm. Dancing is great exercise for the body and the brain while the music and movement feeds the soul. We will start with simple dances, and everything will be taught, so no experience is necessary, nor do you need a partner. Just bring a bottle of water, your energy, and be ready for a good time.
