Richelle Arber – Zooz Israeli Dancing School

Richelle started Israeli dancing in Melbourne, in September 1992.

She has had experience teaching all levels of Israeli dancing for 20 years. Since 1995, she has frequently travelled to Israel for the Karmiel Dance Festival as well as to New York, London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Argentina, Chile & Brazil, for various Israeli Dance Camps and Workshops. On each visit to Israel, she attends numerous dance sessions, throughout the country, led by different choreographers/teachers.  In 2003, she attended and graduated from a 10 day Foreign Israeli Dance Teachers’ Course held at Karmiel, Israel.  In 2021, Richelle completed with distinction, the Certificate of Israeli Folk Dance Instructor’s course conducted by Tel Aviv University. In the past, Richelle volunteered her services to Jewish Care for over 2 years, where she taught a very small but enthusiastic group of dancers, on a weekly basis.


She is very close friends with many Israeli dance choreographers and dance leaders (teachers) from various cities around the world, with whom she maintains regular contact.

Richelle has a special interest in teaching beginners in circles, lines and partner dancing and in training dancers to become Israeli dance instructors. She has developed her own teaching techniques and methods, aided by her past experience as a tennis coach (as a hobby) and her understanding of human movement. These methods have proven to be tremendously successful when you see the quality of the dance students she has produced in a very, very, short time. She is extremely passionate about Israeli dancing and is totally dedicated and patient with her students. All her classes are extremely enjoyable. Richelle loves to teach and loves to dance. You will feel it and see it when you attend any of her classes.
