If we’ve learned anything at all during this pandemic
It’s that our finding fun should be anything but academic!
We have options galore to dance around the world
Such opportunities help our flags come unfurled.
Are you stuck in a rut?  Now try other things!
Social distancing allows us to stretch our dance wings!
Try this and try that – there’s nothing to lose
We can go anywhere virtually, do anything we choose!
I strongly suggest that you join us on Saturday
When an Israeli dance workshop will be underway.
Aaron Alpert’s the leader and he’s ready to rock
Don’t hesitate, everyone to this workshop should flock!
