Oren Ashkenazi Workshop

Weekend 14-15 Oct 2017

Many of us enjoyed the Hora Shalom weekend workshop with the popular Israeli choreographer and dance teacher Oren Ashkenazi.

Oren Ashkenazi 2017

Oran also had a session on Monday evening in place of our Monday dance, where he taught Chupchik, a hectic dance based on the music of Serbian musician / band leader Goran Bregovich.

He also revised many of the dances from his weekend workshop.

Oren is not only a brilliant teacher and choreographer, but also a wonderful dancer. His choreographies involve the whole body, especially arms and hands, and he is a delight to watch.

A big "Thank You" to Hora Shalom for organising this event.

May Day Party without Coins

Mon 1 May 2017

Our friends "The Last Five Coins" were due to play for our May Day party night, but unfortunately Mark Bozikovic was unable to play, so ...

we wore red and spring themes, and danced to recorded music. We were delighted to have several guest dancers from the North Beach circle dance group, and a highlight of the evening was a performance by the Turkish Australian Culture House Singing Group, singing both a traditional Turkish song, and a Turkish version of Bella Cioa (take note Erdoğan?).

Red Faces

Sat 10 Sep 2016 7pm

Our annual Red Faces show of questionable entertainment was a great success, some fine talent, and some hilarious and slightly disturbing acts that probably shouldn't have been video recorded! The only problem was a shortage of seats! Who'd have thought?

Congratulations to Leone and everyone else on a memorable evening. Sorry, we don't offer counselling.

Not a PID event, but many of our dancers joined the fundraising contradance organised by Steven Janowiecki, at St Margaret's church hall.

Fremantle Street Parade

Sun 1 Nov 2015

This year about 20 dancers, including a number of our friends from Hora Shalom, took part in the Fremantle Festival Street Parade, dancing basic hora, Nigun Atik, Tarantella and Hora Medura to the music of Russell Johnsen and Mark Bozikovic.

It was a bit crazy, starting at our gathering point among the jugglers, steampunk pirates, feathery samba dance girls, Russian dancers and percussion ensembles - a continuous cacophony and feast for the eyes.

Before the start, we worried that we wouldn't hear our violin and accordion over the noise of the samba percussion bands, but in the end it wasn't a problem. It was a challenge to keep up with the parade when it stopped for a while and then rushed off, but we settled into it, enjoyed ourselves and got a warm response from the onlookers.

Freo Parade 1

Hopefully, we can do it again next year.

Freo Parade 2

Special thanks to The Last Five Coins (Russell and Mark), Hora Shalom, Palenque for choreography, John and Jenny Bardill for bringing the banner, and all who joined the dance!!!
