RKYHS Hosts Rikudiah Inter-Yeshiva Dance Tzedaka Competition

The 11th annual Rikudiah, the inter-yeshiva high school girls’ dance competition, and tzedaka fundraiser took place Sunday April 3. The Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School was thrilled to host the competition which gives those students interested in dance the opportunity to become leaders in their area of interest by producing something of their own while also developing their talents in a meaningful setting. RKYHS, Hillel, Flatbush, Ma’ayanot, Ramaz, HANC, Ilan, SAR, Frisch and Central each sent a dance team to compete.

All teams presented beautifully, with amazing talent, creative themes and complex choreography. Three professional Jewish dancers judged the competition to determine the winners. Yeshivah of Flatbush came in first place, Ilan in second, RKYHS in third and Hillel received an honorable mention. As first place winner, the Yeshivah of Flatbush team will be choosing the tzedaka that the proceeds of the event will go towards.

One of the highlights of the event is the conclusion of the program, where the girls from all the dance teams as well as the spectators dance together. It is a beautiful scene to watch over 200 yeshiva high school girls from different schools dance and sing together to contemporary Jewish music, especially after a two-year hiatus. All women and girls are invited to be a part of the excitement next year at the 12th annual Rikudiah! For more information, contact CM Gerson, the Rikudiah coordinator, at [email protected].
