Temple to host Jewish dancer

NASHUA – Temple Beth Abraham welcomes Steven Lee Weintraub, a teacher, choreographer and performer of Jewish dance – particularly Yiddish dance, the dance to klezmer music – at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 22.

Weintraub will talk about the relationship between klezmer music and dance. Learn about the dances and rituals that accompany the distinctive folk sounds of klezmer music.

Weintraub received his dance training in Manhattan with Alvin Ailey and Erick Hawkins, among others. He is in international demand as a teacher of traditional Yiddish dance at festivals and workshops, including Klezkamp, Klezkanada and festivals in Krakow, Furth, Paris, London and more.

Weintraub introduces people to the figures, steps and stylings of the dances that belong to klezmer music. He has often been called the "Pied Piper of Yiddish Dance"; his years of experience leading and researching Yiddish dance allow him to quickly weave dancers and music together.

Admission is free. You can join the Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club for breakfast at 9:30 a.m. ($10 payable at the door) prior to hearing Weintraub. RSVPs are requested at www.tbanashua.org.
