Welcome to Nirkoda Beginners Classes

Suggested Guidelines

  • Please arrive a few minutes before the class is due to start to allow time to get ready. Simply present your Gold Pass to the desk upon arrival.
  • Bring a water drink bottle or coffee mug. Tea/coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
  • Wear comfortable clothing. Runners or flat dance shoes are best. Thongs, sandals, heels or bare feet are inappropriate for dancing.
  • Nirkoda Gold Pass entitles you to dance at any Beginners Class. You are welcome to stay on to dance at a higher level, provided you come within the first half hour of the Beginners Class.
  • Nirkoda Gold Pass is not transferable nor refundable.
  • This Gold Pass is valid for the dates shown on the card. Once finished, please join Nirkoda Folk Dancing Club and continue attending. You can then "pay as you go" or buy a Members Blue Card for discounted sessions - see below for Cost.
  • There are 3 forms of Israeli Folk Dancing. Nirkoda offers all these to you in our New Beginners Classes:
    • Circles Thu 9 am at Scout Hall, Birch St, and Sat 1:00 pm at St Aloysius.
    • Lines at all Beginners classes except Sunday.
    • Partners Sun 6.15 pm at St Aloysius.
  • REMEMBER: Israeli Folk Dancing at Nirkoda is FUN, social and great exercise!!!
 

Cost

The cost for each class is $10 for members and $12 for non-members. Membership is only $20 per year.

New Beginners can buy a special card when a New Beginners Course is run giving them UNLIMITED classes for an 8 week period. Contact a teacher to find out when the next course will be run.

Members can buy a 12 session Nirkoda Card for $115 (which means each class costs $9.58). This also means you do not need to carry cash with you to every class.

All classes are the same price whether you stay for the first hour only or the full session. Beginners are welcome to stay on after their session to watch or try the intermediate dances.

As all of our halls are airconditioned, you can dance at any session in comfort no matter what the outside temperature.
