Amit Goldenberg and Ya’ara Dolev, married to each other as well as their art, will present “Dancing The Dream” at the North Shore Center for Performing Arts in Skokie on Monday, May 12. The program, which also features members of Germany’s Wee Dance Company as well as Ethiopian, Israeli, and Russian students from the Ne’urim Youth Village, is one of Hadassah Chicago Chapter’s “Celebrate Israel @ 60” programs.
When I called them in Jaffa, Amit and Ya’ara told me that after working with Wee founders Danny Peleg and Marko Wiegert for several years, the four dancers decided to begin touring together. “We have a relationship of true friendship and love,” Ya’ara said. So they are delighted to add Chicago to a list of stops that already includes Germany, Holland, and Israel. For tickets, visit www.chicago.hadassah.org or call Hadassah’s Chicago Chapter office at 847-675-6790.
In addition to the NSCPA performance on Monday night, Amit also told me they plan to do workshops featuring four of their De De Dance Company colleagues at Deerfield and New Trier High Schools on Tuesday, May 13.
