Dancing Through the Ages

By Liz Lerman

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Fall 2010

The author, a choreographer and Founding Artistic Director of a contemporary dance company states that dancing between generations is not just good for the older folks. It is good for all of us. Our ability to convey curiosity, love, commitment and care can live in the body, in the counts, in the music and in the structure of learning that dancing together provides. As far as I am concerned, every synagogue, home for the aged, day school and Jewish institution can use an infusion of movement practices. Jewish life in America is so full of possibility. This is one more way to fulfill its promise.
