Steve Weintraub left the dance floor long enough to join us in studio to talk about Yiddish dance. Steve teaches dance workshops around the world, including at the annual Yidstock: The Festival of New Yiddish Music. In our conversation, we learn how Steve found his way to Yiddish dance, how he studied its roots, and how he documented its elements.
