Franklin HoustonTeaching this week will be by Franklin Houston. He will present another pair of classic Israeli dances (Harmonica and Hora Agadati) and will also review the dances he taught last week - Eten Bamidbar (Israel), Čačak (Serbia), Hanoded (Israel), and Skudrinka (Macedonia).

AIFD needs you!!

John ScalesAIFD is experiencing a shortage of programmer (DJ) assistants. These are folks who volunteer to show up on a given Friday by 6:30 to help the DJ set up sound equipment and the ‘Welcome’ table.

AIFD is volunteer based; but since we restarted Friday dancing we’ve had a smaller than usual roster of DJs and assistants. Even if you can only help set up at the beginning, please consider doing so!

Contact (currently John Scales) for info – and to volunteer.

Thank you – happy dancing
