Temple of Dance Israel resumes courses in May!
May 1 – July 3, 2018
Dance meetings will take place every Every Tuesday (yom shlee-shee) between May 1 – July 3, from 10 am – 2 pm  in ZIchron Ya’aqov

Weekly Intensive Course is a special opportunity for women who are able to *commit* to a weekly experience into the holistic dance language through deepened immersion.  Once a week we gather to learn the foundations of the curriculum – we learn the holistic dance language vocabulary, participate in healing movement practice, and  physical/spiritual training.  This work focuses on the inner healing aspects of the work, which is why we create a closed circle, where a foundation of trust may develop between all present.
