Come Let Us Dance (Lomir Geyn Tantsn)
We are all familiar with Klezmer music - but what dances go together with the music? In the communities of Central and Eastern Europe, dancing was always present at weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, many spiritual gatherings and other happy occasions.  Miriam Rochlin teaches us the dance steps of a Freylekh and two variations of the Sher.  A protegee of Polish-born dancer/choreographer Nathan Vizonsky, Ms. Rochlin brings the history and context of these dances alive, while filmmaker Karen Goodman enriches our understanding of Jewish dance and culture.
