Rikudiah Dance Competition

On Saturday night, December 3rd, the Yeshivah of Flatbush dance team competed in Hillel Yeshiva’s Rikudiah Dance Competition. Hillel, Magen David, Illan, Shulamith, Kushner, Frisch, and the Yeshivah of Flatbush competed in this Rikudiah, and Flatbush proudly placed second. Captains Barbara Dayan and Kimi Hamadani and the rest of the team organized practices Tuesday and Thursday nights as well as Sundays. Sheri Torgueman and Barbara Dayan choreographed the team’s four-minute dance that performed at Hillel Yeshiva. The dance ranged from lyrical and hip-hop to Kimi Hamadani’s tap dancing. In placing second, the team was awarded a sum of money to donate to the charity of their choice. Since the competition was held in Hillel, the team decided to give the money to the Jherin Gorcey A”H Foundation which is raising money for a Mikveh and a girls’ Bet Midrash in Eatontown; Jherin Gorcey A”H was a Hillel High School student who passed away last year. The Yeshivah of Flatbush dance team will be hosting its own second annual dance competition on March 18th in the Yeshivah. We hope that all girls and women will come to this event to support Flatbush.
