Every year the women of Gush Etzion get together to run an annual charity dance show, called Dames of the Dance. For months, night after night, the wives leave the house to practice together for their women-only shows that attract thousands of theater-goers, dance enthusiasts and bored housewives from all across Israel.
But what about the poor husbands, left alone to fend for themselves and maintain the household while their wives (including the reportedly talented wife of our beleaguered boss, Stephen) are away having fun at dance practice?
No one ever asked them how they feel… until now.
DAMES of the DANCE is an annual charity dance extravaganza by volunteers from Efrat and Gush Etzion that gives women in every type of dance, an opportunity grow in creativity and ability, while helping those in need. Founded in 2006 by Sharon Katz, DAMES of the DANCE donates its profits to the needy through the Gush Etzion Foundation.
