UNIQUE ASPECTS ABOUT SHORASHIM & SOME NEW THINGS FOR 2016

 

  • RESERVE YOUR SPACE & SAVE MONEY: Shorashim continues our 25-year tradition of providing the best teachers at an affordable cost.  This year you will be able to make reservations prior to the weekend at the very low rates we had last year and pay only when you arrive at the door (Shabbat observers will be accommodated). These very low rates apply to all reservations: per session, whole day, or complete weekend. If you do not pre-register, the rates will be higher at the door (see above).
  • Having been transformed into an "urban camp" 20 years ago, Shorashim remains on Broadway with all events at Bridge for Dance, a professional dance studio with air-conditioning  and a great wooden dance floor (especially for those who still love to dance barefoot).
  • You can pick and choose the workshop(s) and party/marathon nights that are appropriate for you, which can result in a considerable savings.
  • The early part the day is free. Workshops start at 2pm.  So if you are visiting New York, you can take advantage of the numerous attractions in the City during part of the day.
  • As a courtesy to visitors to New York City attending Shorashim, names of reasonably priced hostels and hotels within walking distance of Bridge for Dance may be provided, if requested.
  • A video will also be available of all the dances taught at Shorashim, and memories of the weekend created by videographer and dance leader, Ben Hole (who  videos of previous Shorashim weekends).
