25th Anniversary Party with The Bait & Switch Blues Band, The Erik Brock Band, & Femme Fatal

FREE!

Since 1993, Berkeley-based BandWorks has helped several thousand youngsters fulfill their dream of playing in a rock band. BandWorks helps organize students into bands, provides coaching with some of the best musician-instructors in the Bay Area, and after 8 weeks rehearsing their favorite rock, pop, blues, reggae and original songs, takes the bands to the stage at Ashkenaz to perform live in front of an audience. In addition, BandWorks offers year-round classes for kids, teens, and adults, as well as summer camps for kids and teens at locations around the Bay Area.

Tonight, the Instructors' bands take the stage for the 25th anniversary party!

COOLEST MEGILLA READING EVER (Bring noise makers and be ready to use them at the mentioning of you-know-who’s name)

Enjoy THE REAL DEAL SHPIELERS with ever-fresh Purim-with-a-twist theatrics. It’s 2018, and a mysterious plot brings a Jewish detective all the way to the holiest part of the holy land. It's a comical/noir tale about a high-stakes battle between reason and fanaticism and the fate of a sacred cow.  And yes, there’s a villain named you-know-who.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: ADAMA and friends will rock out with their unique brand of Middle Eastern and Klezmer fusion for your dancing pleasure.

COME IN COSTUME! Bust out your polyester and start growing your mustache!

Children are welcome!

A program of Afsaneh Arts & Culture Society, Danceversity promotes a positive experience of different cultures for youth (ages 7-17) through an innovative curriculum of multicultural dance and music. The programs encourage and celebrate diversity and artistic expression and serve to build cross-cultural competency, self-esteem, leadership skills and physical education opportunities. We provide a variety of weekly classes throughout the school year as well as hosting a 2-3 week summer camp in August.

Kalaripayattu South Indian Martial Arts with Kamala Devam for youth (ages 7-17).

Dates: Jan. 8, 18, 22, 29, Feb. 5, 12 (Monday's except for 1/18)

Rate: $120 with performance at end

This is an exciting martial art form from the southern Indian state of Kerala called 'Kalaripayattu'. This martial art is thought to be the mother of all others, incorporating the fighting actions of animals found in India and moving in graceful, circular motions between fantastic kicks and flying jumps. Students will become stronger, more flexible and have fun learning a new way of moving. No previous martial arts or dance experience is needed.

Afghan Traditional Dance with Samia Karimi beginning February 26, 2018

Tajik Traditional Dance with Natalie Nayun beginning April 16, 2018
