Where I came from, dancing consisted of jumping up and down while standing in place with one arm raised in the air, or of whipping your hair around in a circle while raising one arm with your index and pinky finger extended. Dancing in Israel, however is another story.
Old movies depict kibbutzniks holding hands and dancing in circles. This culture is still alive and well. Dance classes for old and new styles of Israeli folk dancing can be found in cities throght the country. Even modern songs -- ballads, rap, anything -- have been remixed for Israeli style dance purposes.
