Avirah is UMD's Israeli Dance Company!

We are a student group that performs and teaches on campus, in the Maryland area, and at Israeli Dance Festivals across the east coast. Avirah's repertoire includes traditional Israeli folkdance and original choreographies in a variety of styles. Our goal is to promote a positive environment where dancers strive for performance excellence.

We're excited to perform on campus and across the East Coast this winter! Save the date for our End-of-Year Showcase at 4pm on May 8th, 2022, in the STAMP!

If you want to learn more, or have us perform or teach in your community, reach out to us at avirahumd@gmail.com. UMD students who are interested in joining or getting involved in Israeli dance: send us a message @avirahumd on Instagram, or join our Terplink page!
