11. http://www.rikud.net/ -We are dancers dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the first generation of Israeli folk dances -- Rikuday Dor Rishon. These dances evolved during the creation and building of Israel -- from the pre-independence era to the reunification of Jerusalem and the post-Six Day War period. The folk dances of this generation reflect an energy level, spirit and optimism unique in the Jewish cultural experience

During the last two decades, the appeal of Israeli dance has grown and expanded in Israel, the United States and throughout the world. The spirit of warmth and exuberance generated through Israeli folk dance draws enthusiasts from all backgrounds and has made Israeli folk dance an integral part of the international folk dance repertoire as well. More and more people are experiencing the excitement of today’s Israeli folk dance activities and are eager to obtain more information about the background and development of the Israeli folk dance movement.

The Israeli Dance Institute, a comprehensive resource and information center, was established by Danny Uziel and Ruth Goodman in 1990 to meet this need. IDI offers professional guidance to teachers, community leaders, performing groups and Israeli folk dance enthusiasts through the following services:
