Who teaches the course?


Sagi Azran, founder of RokdimLA, will be teaching the Beginners Course. Sagi has been a teacher, session leader and a choreographer since he was a teenager. He was only 9 years old when Misha’el Barzilay, one of the most appreciated personalities in the world of Israeli dance, asked him to teach a dance to a crowd of 250 dancers. Years later, Sagi founded an organization in Israel dedicated to teaching kids dance in order to keep them away from violence. Today, living in Los Angeles, Sagi brings exceptional energy to his L.A. sessions with the goal of making sure dancers do not forget the authenticity and value of Israeli dance.

Assisting Sagi will be Jeremy Abrams. Jeremy has been dancing for 20 years. He started teaching and programming with Yaron Ben Simhon at the largest sessions in Jerusalem in 2008. Jeremy is also a choreographer, having reached the finals at the Ashdodance choreography competition in Israel, and is currently a session leader at Orange County Israeli Dancing in Santa Ana, California.
