Amitai Lipton
 

Hi all, Happy New Year, and Chag Sameach!

 

We want to thank everyone for taking our Rosh Hashanah poll. We were excited to hear your ideas for the session, and now we’re back with a new schedule! Starting this week, we’ll have early partners from 7.30-8.00pm, and the regular session will start at 8.00. Late partners will be shortened a bit (starting at 10.30pm), giving us MORE TIME for our regular session dances! We also want to thank all of the Community Programmers. We love dancing your sets with you! Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in programming a set in the future. We’re still planning to honor our session’s roots by continuing to include “Way Back Wednesday” dances in our regular programming and teaching repertoire dances, in addition to the new dances we’ve been teaching. We’re always happy to hear from our dancers, so drop us a note if there’s a change you want to see implemented in the session!

COVID-19. This means having been fully vaccinated (receiving a second
dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or first dose of the J & J
vaccine at least two weeks prior to dancing). You can either bring
your vaccination card or a picture of your card to dancing - we will
not record any information from the card, just note that you have
received the vaccination. Additionally, we will not be requiring
dancers to wear masks, though we certainly respect the comfort of
those who choose to. Each dancer will need to sign a waiver as well
(extra copies will be available at the session).
 
Rikud Revi'i (Wednesday night Israeli Dancing session) is operated by
Greater Boston Israeli Dance, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit

penny we receive in admissions & donations is used to keep the
session going!

We're back THIS WED. 7/7 !!!

Amitai Lipton
 

Dear Boston Wednesday Night Israeli Dance community,

We are thrilled to be returning to dancing THIS WEDNESDAY, July 7th at
the Stephan F Rutledge VFW, 386 Washington Street in Brookline. We
hope to see you tomorrow to dance together as a community and
celebrate the continuation of the session post-COVID. General
Admission is $5, Students are $3.

We have some exciting updates:

1. Name: We officially have a new name - Rikud Revi'i (Wednesday Dance
- with fun alliteration in Hebrew!), a continuation of the decades of
Wednesday dancing in Boston!

2. Session Format: We are going to be trying out a new format for the
session to honor the different interests and needs of community
members. As always, we'd love your feedback!

From 7:30 - 8:15pm, we will be having Way Back Wednesdays, a tribute
to our days at MIT through playing classics from the session and
reteaching dances that were popular during the last several decades of
dancing. This could include debkas, horas, yemenites, nostalgia
(oldies), emtza haderech, and more! Thank you in advance to Larry
Denenberg for starting us off this week with YOUR (thanks to everyone
who voted!) choice and a Boston classic - Bosmat!

From 8:15 -10:15pm will be our regular session of circles, lines, and
partners. Each week we will be featuring a short specialty set from a
guest programmer from the community - thank you in advance to Alexis
Maharam for stepping up to the plate as our community programmer this
week!

Finally, from 10:15 -11:00pm will be late partners.

3. COVID-19 Protocols: In order to keep the community safe during this
time, we are going to be requiring proof of vaccination against
COVID-19. This means having been fully vaccinated (receiving a second
dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or first dose of the J & J
vaccine two weeks prior to dancing). You can either bring your
vaccination card or a picture of your card to dancing - we will not
record any information from the card, just note that you have received
the vaccination. Additionally, we will not be requiring dancers to
wear masks, though we certainly respect the comfort of those who
choose to. Finally, we're attaching a waiver here that you can sign
either prior to the session or we'll have printed copies to sign in
person on Wednesday as well.

If you have any questions, please contact the Rikud Revi'i team at
info@bostonisraelidance.org. We couldn't be more excited to be
returning to dancing in person and can't wait to see you on the dance
floor! See you TOMORROW!

Hi Dance Family,

The global pandemic put us on pause - like everything else in the world as we knew it - but the Boston Wednesday Night Israeli Dance session can't wait to continue our decades-long tradition of dancing with our amazing community now that it's once again safe to do so. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook group (Boston Wednesday Night Israeli Dancing) for more information on our grand re-opening on Wednesday, July 7 - we've been hard at work finalizing the details!

We wanted to clarify some rumors to avoid any confusion:
- YES, we've always been planning to continue our Wednesday night session post pandemic. In fact, the Stephan F Rutledge VFW in Brookline has been holding onto our deposit since March 2020 and recently informed us they updated their filtration system so that we can safely continue to dance there. We're so excited!
- YES, we were as shocked as you were to learn of a new session slated to begin on Wednesday nights in the fall regardless of whether we're continuing ours. We found out almost a week after we had announced via email and Facebook that we were close to re-opening our session on Wednesday nights. While we're saddened by these efforts to divide our community, we remain committed to running an amazing community-centered program every Wednesday night at the VFW.
- YES, we continue to be committed to working alongside other session leaders, here and around the world, to support the Boston Israeli Folk Dance community, and we will, as always, respond in kind should there be any efforts to work together or engage in open conversation.

Thank you to those of you who have already reached out to us with your support. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Love,
Eliana, Katie, Rina, and Sara
Boston Wednesday Night Israeli Dancing Team

P.S. Also save the date for our annual Christmas Eve Israeli Dance Marathon on Saturday, December 25!


We're back July 7th!
