THE JOY AND SPIRIT OF FOLK AND MODERN DANCE | BARBARA SUPOVITZ
Exploring folk dances from Israel, Portugal, Russia and Greece, dancers will develop a sense of oneness and an appreciation of other cultures. Inspired by this vocabulary, dancers will create their own folk dance and learn some of Barbara’s original choreography, which combines Israeli and modern dance to express the rich, multicultural heritage of the Jewish people.

She was a Professor of Dance at Montgomery College for 20 years, where she also co-directed the Montgomery College Dance Touring Company. She teaches folk dance workshops at the University of Arizona and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Towson University, Goucher College, and Howard Community College. Videos of her ethnic choreography are part of the dance collection of the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts.
