This is HoraWiki, a treasury of Israeli folkdance information that anyone can edit! To get started, visit the Home Page.‎

On this page we record and discuss the virtual dance sessions that arose in March 2020 when most sessions were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This page is mostly for discussion, reactions, ideas, improvements. A (hopefully) comprehensive list of sessions, with times and links, can be found here.

This page is a stub, which means it's incomplete. If you'd like to help HoraWiki by improving it, create an account if you don't have one, log in to your account, and edit away!

General Discussion

(This section can be used for discussion not specific to a single session. Reactions to a specific session should be added in that session's section below.)

Page Minimal-Contact Partner Dances lists partner dances appropriate to virtual sessions, with discussion of the criteria.

Here is a section for each of the individual sessions; please add other sessions as new sections.
