Greenville, SC- Local visual artist, Elizabeth Stehling will present a short film about an Israeli folk dance lesson entitled MAYIM, WATERS that provides a glimpse into local character, dance and multiculturalism. Mayim, the Hebrew word for water, is also the name for a popular dance step known in the USA as the Grapevine.

Participants include the Greenville International Folk Dancers, Clemson International Folk Dancers, Harvest Moon Folk Society, and local responders to the Facebook open call. Camera work is by Steve Snell and dance consultation by Teresa Pizzuto and Jennie Wakefield.
