The Festival always holds various dance workshops, including "Harkadnaot” (in Hebrew: “harkada”, dancing + “sadnaot”, workshop) - teaching of both old and brand new Israeli dances.

The workshops will be led by the best instructors in Israel and will be divided to different groups, based on the level of dancing abilities and preferences of the participants. Moreover, for each group there will be a dedicated space/area. In that way, these groups will allow every dancer to get the most out of the camp!
