About the instructor, Bruria Cohen: 

“The joy that I get from Israeli Dance is unparalleled by any other activity: not Zumba, not weight training, not an aerobic workout, nothing compares to Israeli Folk Dancing. The synchronized movement, the music, and the social connection – when combined they are transformed into something unique that I simply can’t live without.” 

Bruria has performed at numerous events around the Chicago area as well as participating in Israeli Folk Dance conventions across the U.S. and is thrilled to bring this dance to the JCC community.

Today is all about having fun and getting wet at Elk Grove Village Park District’s Rainbow Falls Waterpark. Kids will have a variety of options for water fun.

For the taller children who are over 48 inches, they can ride on the Pelican Plunge (wind your way down to the water with this fast, fun slide), or go on the Calypso Twist which houses four giant water slides (two body slides and two tube slides) which twist you down to the River’s edge. Check out their website for more information: http://www.elkgroveparks.org/Rainbow_Falls/
