Yiddish dance workshop with Helen Winkler at the monthly OFDA dance cafe (Ontario Folk Dance Association) February 2, 2013. Shown a partner dance "Sher" that merges to a "Freylekhs" dance. Music by The Yiddish Swingtet Trio -- klezmer clarinetist, Jonno Lightstone, pianist Jordan Klapman and guitarist, Tony Quarrington. The sher demonstrated in this video is abbreviated. The traditional sher involved many more exchanges of partners around the set with more repetitions of the chorus, but due to time constraints, we did not do the full sher at this event.
