Kochavim: a snapshot
Wednesday, April 28, 2010
For the sixth year in a row, I've organized an Israeli dance camp weekend held in the Texas Hill Country. Every year it's attracted approximately 70 dancers from Texas and the rest of the country. Unlike other Israeli dance camps, we don't invite the choreographers to come teach, we invite some of the best teachers and dance session leaders. Kochavim means stars, and at this camp, the dancers are the stars!
In honor of our five years (and six camps), we asked the dancers to send in a picture of themselves at age 5 or 6. We created a wall of stars, and had everyone try to identify them.
What a weekend! I'm still so exhausted I'm going to keep this short, but did want to share the excitement.
and danced some more.....
but clearly not enough!
We had a pool party and went down the monster slides
We played Israeli dance Jeopardy....
and tried to identify all the Stars!
Lots of challenges, lots of excitement, lots of realizations and lots of lessons learned.
But all of that is for another blog.
