Boogie Nights Jerusalem

Boogie takes the interaction of artists and audience, through music, dance, and movement, to another level. It gives the audience an opportunity to interrelate in a less formal environment with different levels of participants. Boogie takes place in Jerusalem.
Location: Jerusalem
Year founded: 1997


Boogie was founded in 1997 by Avi Edry, with the help of Zohar Rabinowitz and Louise Harris, with the intention of creating events of music and movement that bring together dancers and musicians interested in alternative activities with the general public.

Boogie is a “sandbox” where people are given musical and movement stimuli to encourage them to create their own dance, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. People are given the chance to express their creative sides and meet others who are different from themselves; creating a mutual learning ground.

Since Avi Edry began learning liturgical poetry and taking courses in Jewish studies at Machon Meir three years ago, he has included special events related to Jewish Holidays in the Boogie events.

Many top musicians, singers, actors, creators, and religious artists in Israel, together with another 350 people, from different cultural and social backgrounds and of all ages, participate in Boogie. Boogie is an open space where the participant receives musical stimulation and interprets it to his or her own personal dance.
