Welcome to Nirkoda Classes

Suggested Guidelines for Beginners

  • Please arrive a few minutes before the class is due to start to allow time to get ready.
  • Bring a water drink bottle or coffee mug. Tea/coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
  • Wear comfortable clothing. Runners or flat dance shoes are best. Thongs, sandals, heels or bare feet are inappropriate for dancing.
  • There are 3 forms of Israeli Folk Dancing. Nirkoda offers all these to you in our New Beginners Classes:
  • Circles - Thu 9 am at Scout Hall, Birch St, and Sat 1:00 pm at St Aloysius
  • Lines - at all Beginners classes except Sunday.
  • Partners - Sun 6.15 pm at St Aloysius.
  • REMEMBER: Israeli Folk Dancing at Nirkoda is FUN, social and great exercise!!!

Cost

The cost for each class is $10 for members and $12 for non-members. Membership is only $20 per year.

New Beginners can buy a special card when a New Beginners Course is run giving them UNLIMITED classes for an 8 week period. Contact a teacher to find out when the next course will be run.

Members can buy a 12 session Nirkoda Card for $115 (which means each class costs $9.58). This also means you do not need to carry cash with you to every class.

All classes are the same price whether you stay for the first hour only or the full session. Beginners are welcome to stay on after their session to watch or try the intermediate dances.

As all of our halls are airconditioned, you can dance at any session in comfort no matter what the outside temperature.
