"Let my people dance" - The Refuseniks revisited
"Creating The Dance" - The stories behind the creation of the dances

"The dance "Nirkod Lashalom" written and choreographed by Australians, presented at the Karmiel dance festival, shown on video by Israel's top teachers: Shlomo Maman, Yaron Carmel, Yaron Ben-Simchon and Gadi Bitton, has been seen by dance sessions around the world.

Almost every Israeli folk dancer alive today has seen this dance. This did not happen since the Israelites danced with Miriam, the sister of Moses, when they reached the safety of the far side of the Red Sea.

But then all the Israelites were gathered in one place, unlike today when we are scattered in all four corners of the earth yet, we will be doing the same dance all at the same time. Phenomenal."

I taught "Nirkod Lashalom" to my class as depicting the road to peace - with its surprising twists and turns, hesitations, grand gestures, and halting steps backwards, yet really simple to achieve.

If you persist and try again you get there at the end. Dance for Peace."
