Klezmer Tanz (Jewish Folk Music and Yiddish Dance)

Farmstead Arts Center, located at 450 King George Road in Basking Ridge, invites you to join us for a Klezmer Tanz....an afternoon of upbeat and lively Jewish folk music and learn the figures, steps & styling of traditional and contemporary Yiddish dance.

Klezmer, a type of folk music of the itinerant European Jewish musician, dates back as far as the 16th century.  Modern klezmer combines its eastern European roots with American jazz idioms to create a lively, emotion-packed program including songs from Yiddish theatre and traditional folk melodies. 

​Fun for the whole family!

The afternoon features: ​

Tsu Fil Duvids (Yiddish for “Too Many Daves”) – a klezmer ensemble based in central New Jersey. The group’s repertoire includes traditional tunes from Eastern Europe, American klezmer and Yiddish melodies. In addition to playing at simchas (Jewish celebrations), Tsu Fil Duvids has performed concerts at synagogues in the tri-state area and has been heard at Limmud Learningfests in NY & Philadelphia, the Crossroads Theater in New Brunswick, the Marasco Center in Monroe, the Rejoice Festival of Jewish Music in South Brunswick and the JetLag Festival in the Catskills.

Steven Lee Weintraub -  teacher, choreographer, and performer of Jewish dance, particularly Yiddish dance, the dance to klezmer music.

Steven delights in introducing people to the figures, steps and stylings of the dances that belong to Klezmer music. He has often been called the “Pied Piper of Yiddish Dance”; his years of experience leading and researching Yiddish dance allow him to quickly weave dancers and music together in astonishing ways. Young and old, from all backgrounds, find it easy to share in the joy of Yiddish dancing.

Tickets on sale now. $18-$25. Free for kids 5 and under. Light refreshments included.
