Tantshoyz! Yiddish Dancing and Dessert Party at The Ellis Hollow Ceilidh Hall (Kathy and Séamus' big living room).

Klezmer music - played by the Ellis Hollow Klezmer Band, featuring members of Cornell University Klezmer Ensemble. This vibrant, energetic, and soulful music evolved in Eastern Europe as the soundtrack for Serious Partying. Klezmer is great fun to dance to and to listen to.

Dances - We'll be doing dances that were danced at traditional Jewish weddings and other celebrations. These dances are easy, spirited and fun. Everyone can do them - beginner dancers and all ages of people are welcome, as well as more experienced dancers. The indefatigable Ryan Zawel and Sarah Schneider, and Kathy Selby will teach and call the dances.

Desserts - There will be a potluck of decadent desserts, please bring a dessert contribution.

Directions here - For more info, contact Kathy.
