Ethnic Dance project

Teaching ethnic dancing to young Israeli children of Ethiopian descent, helps them connect with their heritage and customs. 

The Problem

Young children from the Ethiopian community, who were born in Israel, seek some way of taking part in their heritage and customs. Ethiopians have their own style of dance and music that the children want to learn.

The Solution

Ethiopian dancing lessons for children in Hefzibah, Netanya, in which they are exposed to Ethiopian music and dance, together with social activity.

The Method

A professional Ethiopian dancer comes once a week to the Hefzibah youth center and teaches the children Ethiopian dances, with authentic Ethiopian music.

Participants

16 Local Ethiopian children

Location

Hefzibah, Netanya
