What is Klezmer Aerobics?
Klezmer Aerobics is a touring cultural performance that is best described as
a family-friendly interactive dance/storytelling workout where “the 1880s meets the 1980s.”
The show’s creator, Rabbi Daniel Brenner, plays an aerobics instructor and leads an audience participation workout as he tells the original story SHVITZ! about Levi and the Old Badchen – a coming-of-age tale about a dancer and his apprentice in a Polish shtetl. The audience learns the traditional dances of the Old Badchen and the dances that Levi learns and creates when he runs off to Warsaw. The show – which has toured to JCCs, synagogues, schools, retirement communities, conferences, and art festivals – is a one-hour joyride packed with Jewish cultural history and delightful klezmer music.

Session will be held outdoors.
