Thanks to a grant from the SteelTree Fund — a project of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh — weekly modern dance classes are available to Jewish women for a suggested donation of $3 per class.

Dubbed “The Rikud Dance Company,” the classes are held on Sundays from noon to 1 p.m. at Bodiography Center for Movement, 5824 Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill, and are taught by a professional instructor. (Class will not meet on Dec. 26, but will resume on Jan. 2).

“No prior training is required,” Susan Jablow, a member of the class said. “Past classes have been attended by everyone from beginners to those with years of dance training. Women of all ages and from any background are encouraged to participate. The classes are intended to build community, enhance health and nurture artistic expression.”

To register, or for more information, contact Elektra Davis at Elektra@bodiography.com.

Participants must wear masks. PJC
