Pre-seminar dance session with Israeli teachers

Let's meet in Prague for nice warm-up dance session with Israeli teachers. It will take place on Tuesday 9th August from 6pm, place will be known later.

Place

MACHOL Czechia 2016 will take place in the town of Nymburk. This small town with a nice old center as well as a former synagogue building is just 60 kilometers far from Prague. We will stay in a sport center compound, which includes gyms, accommodation, dining room, swimming pool, Wi-Fi Internet access etc. It is a nice quiet place on a shore of the river just about 20 minutes' walk to the city center.

Accommodation

accommodation is in 2-bed rooms with a bathroom and toilet each (completely renewed just a year ago).

Food

is served three times a day, breakfast in form of a buffet, lunch and dinner in form of self-service cafeteria with selection from 3 main courses. There are hot beverages and cookies available during dance sessions.

Gymnasium

there are two gyms - air-conditioned spacious main gym and another one for special lessons (both with wooden floor).

Schedule great for advanced dancers!

We make sure the experience of Israeli dances will be complete - we will learn much more than new and older dances, circle, couple and line dances... There will be also special lessons of the best dances from selected decades... And also truly very advanced lesson!
You won't find better camp for advanced dancers anywhere else!

Swimming pool

On Saturday morning the swimming pool will be fully booked just for us.

Teachers

Our main teacher is Boaz Cohen. He was born in Jerusalem; he started to dance Israeli folk dances during studies at secondary school. He received his Bachelors degree in international relations and South American Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Since 1987, Boaz has been leading courses in Israeli dances. His courses in Jerusalem as well as other places are popular among dancers of all ages.

With Boaz we will have Gidi Eiko again and for the first time to MACHOL Czechia Eyal Ozeri. Eyal is well known teacher and choreographer in Israel, still not so common in Europe! Eyal has interesting dance experience including professional dancing in Inbal troupe. Currently he teaches 4 days a week at his own sessions in several cities in Israel. Three of his dances have won awards at the Karmiel Israeli Dance Festival: Shimri Et Libech (couples), Yad BeYad (couples) and Shemesh Aduma (circle). But there are many more beautiful dances he created like Bati Elecha (circle), Kol Hatziporim (circle), Kmo Shokolad (circle), Barcheni (circle)…

Transportation

Participants can travel by car (map available on request) or come to the town of Nymburk (train, bus), from where a special bus will take them to the place. We organize a meeting in Prague from where all participants can travel together.
