This year’s Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston has been canceled. We know what a disappointment this is for the entire community, dancers and audience alike. Unfortunately our host venue MIT has canceled all events with more than 150 attendees until at least May 15. Here is a link to the message from MIT:
