On April 13-14 2020 in the early days of the lockdown, a global community of Israeli dance leaders came together to present the first ever 24 Hour worldwide Israeli dance marathon via Zoom. It was a tremendous success with more than 1000 dancers participating from all over the word. At the same time, funds were raised to support local charities chosen by the dance leaders. The event was sponsored by Machol Merkaz, Chicago Israeli Dancing and Jewishaustralia.com.
Well, here it is, roughly 6 months later and it is still not safe to dance in large numbers indoors, and even outdoors. So, WE ARE BACK WITH MARATHON 2, this time under the auspices of Camp Nirkoda Bamerkaz (the virtual merger of camps Nirkoda Bakerem and Machol Merkaz). Camp Nirkoda Bamerkaz will take place on Zoom on October 23 2020 (watch the Machol Merkaz tab on this site for more info). But on Saturday October 24 2020, the Israeli staffs of Nirkoda Bakerem, Machol Merkaz, the Chicago Israeli Dancing (Global) Project Team, and Israeli dance leaders from all over the world will combine to bring you Marathon 2 followed by an After-Party Schmooze!!!
